Ricardo Bofill Levi is a Spanish architect who graduated at the School of Architecture at the University of Barcelona and at the School of Architecture in Geneva. In 1963, he gathered a group of architects, engineers, planners, designers, sociologists, writers, directors and philosophers and created what today constitutes a world-famous compan Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura (RBTA).
It is an international company with over 1,000 projects in more than 40 countries, including the cities like Lisbon, Boston and Saint Petersburg, in addition to Barcelona.
However, the innovative and interdisciplinary approach to architecture and design, i.e., urban design, does not amount to the only thing that makes this company so unique.
And there’s something else:
Its headquarters, which at the same time function as Ricardo Bofill’s private residence, look like a fairy tale house.
But, unlike those fairy tale houses, this one was made from a factory.
