Spotlight: Ricardo Bofill / The Factory

Updated: May 3

In 1973, Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill found an abandoned cement factory - consisting of over 30 silos, 4 kilometres of underground tunnels and transformed it into the head office of Taller de Arquitectura, his architectural firm. This factory was found to date back to the first period of the industrialization of Catalonia and was not built all at once, but as a series of additions.


Not far from the northeastern coast of Spain, Sant Just Desvern hosts this converted factory. Beyond Taller's offices, there's spaces for social and cultural facilities.
