Visions of Architecture

Poetic spaces, surreal structures and dramatic visions. The extraordinary career of Ricardo Bofill is collected in this monograph, which reveals his inspiring approach to architecture, and to life.

Ricardo Bofill is one of the 20th century’s most unique architects and radical visionaries. His visions for urban and communal life challenged preconceived notions of shared space and proposed alternative styles of living. This monograph explores his revolutionary approach by profiling his greatest projects like La Fábrica, Walden 7, La Muralla Roja or Abraxas. Spectacular new photography by Salva López, texts by experts like Nacho Alegre and Douglas Murphy as well as by Bofill himself are complemented with sketches and floor plans. Bofill’s fantastic creations satisfy a longing for originality, personality and progressive ideals.

MEET THE EDITORS

Richard Bofill

Ricardo Bofill is a world renowned post-modern Spanish architect, best known for introducing a modern building technology and invoking in his designs, the Classical touch of architecture inspired by the magnificence and artistic extravagance of the era of Louis XIV.

Born on December 5, 1939, in Barcelona, Spain, to a Catalan father and a Venetian mother. In 1955, Ricardo attended the Escuela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in Barcelona, and later, in 1957, he enrolled at the Architecture University of Geneva, Switzerland. In 1960, Bofill established the Taller de Arquitectura (Architecture Workshop) in Barcelona. The workshop had a very interdisciplinary and unconventional approach to architecture, it not only employed architects, but a whole range of designers, mathematicians, musicians, poets and a philosopher. As the Taller progressed and rose in success, Bofill rose to the status of a romantic figure who was responsible to inculcating a creative, artistic and intellectual spirit in his team. The main office of his firm was established in Barcelona, while other offices were located in New York and Paris.

Our origin story began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both our content and our expertise has widened. Today, using a myriad of observations of culture, people, art, and other intimate inspirational informants, we document and anticipate vital movements in architecture, visual culture, design & fashion, escapism, food & beverages, travel, and contemporary art.”
