Architecture of Impressions

Ricardo Bofill (b. 1939), a graduate of the Barcelona University School of Architecture and the School of Geneva,

and the founder of interdisciplinary firm Taller de Arquitectura, is renowned for his extensive body of work and ever-changing design aesthetic.

Ricardo Bofill’s post-modern sensibilities (rejecting the stylistic and ideological restraints of modernism and accepting the lessons of centuries of architectural history)
have allowed him to create heroic public housing with advanced concrete techniques that evoke the splendors of past French rulers such as Louis XIV and Napoleon.
