The PIBAMARMI pavilion at the 2013 edition of MARMOMACC in Verona was designed by the Spanish architect Alberto CAMPO BAEZA, winner of the Fair’s International Award Architecture in Stone 2013 for the office building of the Castilla León Junta in front of the Cathedral in Zamora. The pavilion for PIBAMARMI represents the materialization of the power of Gravity over Light. It consists of an enormous hazelnut travertine stone measuring 4x4x1 m suspended in the air at only 1,90 m height in the center of a cube of Light measuring 8x8x4 m, over a reflective floor. Passing below such a massive, low-hanging stone, we physically feel the compression produced by its weight. As simple as that. CAMPO BAEZA is a tenured professor at ETSAM and an architect of international renown who designed the award-winning pavilion for PIBAMARMI at the 2009 edition of MARMOMACC. In 2013 he has received the Heinrich Tessenow Gold Medal in Germany and the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters of New York and the International Award Architecture in Stone 2013 in Italy which has presented to him in Verona at MARMOMACC 2013. PABELLÓN PIBAMARMI El pabellón para PIBAMARMI en la feria MARMOMACC de Verona 2013 ha sido proyectado por el arquitecto español Alberto CAMPO BAEZA, que ha recibido en esa misma Feria el International Award Architecture in Stone 2013 por el edificio del Consultivo de la Junta de Castilla y León en Zamora frente a la Catedral. El Pabellón para PIBAMARMI es una materialización del poder de la Gravedad sobre la Luz. Consiste en una enorme piedra de travertino nocciola de 4x4x1 m suspendida en el aire a sólo 1,90 m de altura en el centro de un cubo de Luz de 8x8x4 m, con el suelo de espejo. Al pasar bajo piedra tan grande y tan baja se siente físicamente la compresión producida por el peso. Tan sencillo como eso. CAMPO BAEZA es catedrático de Proyectos de la ETSAM y es un arquitecto de prestigio internacional que ya hizo el premiado pabellón para PIBAMARMI en el MARMOMACC 2009. En este año 2013 ha recibido la Heinrich Tessenow Gold Medal en Alemania y el Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize de la American Academy of Arts and Letters de Nueva York y el International Award Architecture in Stone 2013 en Italia que se le ha entregado en Verona en este MARMOMACC2013.
