Ricardo Bofill

«With its abundance of classical motifs, brutalism and Catalan vernacular, Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill’s oeuvre defies easy classification. In a new video produced for the Time Space Existence video series, Bofill describes his relationship to space as a source of pleasure, not unlike the pleasure derived from music or art. The interview takes place at La Fábrica, Bofill’s most emblematic project — as well as his studio and home. Repurposed from an abandoned cement factory at the edge of Barcelona, La Fábrica has served as a home and studio for Bofill for over four decades. Surrounded by lush vegetation, its silos and smokestacks form the sculptural basis for Bofill’s eclecticism».
