Description

Ricardo Bofill - Visions of Architecture, published by Gestalten, tells the story of the famous Spanish architect whose radical visions shook up 20th-century ideas about urban and community life. The book explores Bofill's major projects, from the La Fábrica cement factory to the famous Walden 7 apartment block. Stunning photographs, expert texts and the architect's own sketches complete and deepen the picture of Bofill – who actually was this ground-breaking, rebellious artist?

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.
