This volume systematically catalogues the whole architectural production of Juan Navarro Baldeweg (Santander, 1939), one of the leading lights of Spanish contemporary architecture.
Painter and architect, Navarro Baldeweg (Santander, 1939) alternates his work within a framework of formal research enlivened by unitary project tension. He approaches his projects with gentle determination and with meticulous care in choosing different materials from a variety of sources, whether he is creating a painting, an installation or a construction. As the author explain in their essays which introduce the monography, the artistic growth of this Spanish architect is informed by a personal visual culture. And it is this culture which is the common denominator running like a thread through all his projects, spanning different creative forms that highlight each ones specific nature, such as the contrast between the strong palette of his paintings and the soft, natural tones of his architecture. The works presented span Navarro Baldeweg’s whole career, one of the leading lights of Spanish contemporary architecture, from his first projects realised towards the end of the seventies to today.
