Verona, Marmomacc 2013

The image of the massive boulder burdening Sisyphus’ existence was an inspiration for Alberto Campo Baeza to work on the concept of gravity; the reference to the Greek myth is at the base of the recent project by the Spanish architect for Pibamarmi pavilion at the 2013 edition of Marmomacc.
The setting aims to stress once again the importance given by Campo Baeza to the force of gravity as architectural main theme: an enormous stone plate will hang over visitors’ heads turning from incumbent presence to “mysterious and provocative” entity, fluctuant among walls made of white silk and duplicated in the image of a completely reflective floor.
