The Factory, Sant Just Desvern, Spain by Ricardo Bofill

In 1973 Ricardo Bofill found a disused cement factory, an industrial complex from the turn of the century consisting of over 30 silos, subterranean galleries and huge machine rooms, and he decided to transform it into the head office of Taller de Arquitectura. Remodelling work lasted two years. The factory, abandoned and partially in ruins, was a compendium of surrealist elements: stairs that climbed up to nowhere, mighty reinforced concrete structures that sustained nothing, pieces of iron hanging in the air, huge empty spaces filled nonetheless with magic.

  1. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover someone who genuinely understands what they’re discussing on the web.
    You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. More people have to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you certainly
    have the gift.
