Spanish Architect: Ricardo Bofill

We subscribe to a LOT of blogs and newsletters so it takes something special to make us double-take.

When we stumbled upon photographs of Ricardo Bofill's architectural project, La Muralla Roja (The Red Wall), we had to admit that this was something worth delving into. Ricardo Bofill and his team, at La Taller de Arquitectura, take problematic or unused spaces and turn them into wonders of design. Inspired by the organic growth of the houses in Morrocan Draa villages, Ricardo Bofill's projects analyse the way space influences community. Bofill's work is a little creepy at times (a red pool?!) and always melodramatic. It is inspiring to see a designer's total commitment to creative integrity. His work is above and beyond passing trends. More of this please! If you want furniture that expresses this kind of creative freedom then check out our Kai Kristiansen Armchairs, Drexel Drawers, Cari Zalloni Vases, Scoop Back Occasional Armchairs, Milo Baughman Sofa and the Brasilia Librenza Image Credit: world-architects.com, archdaily.com
