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.
