Ricardo Bofill changed the 20th century with his revolutionary visions for urban architecture. From sci-fi utopian social housing projects to postmodern classicism and onward to high-tech glass and steel modernism, the architect’s bold vision has been nothing if not ambitious. Taller de Arquitectura, Bofill’s workshop, has been a thriving center of creative rebellion for over five decades. Today, Bofill s buildings like Walden 7, Kafka’s Castle and La Muralla Roja are immortalized in popular culture and there is a renewed interest in his radical ideas around shared space and alternative styles of living.

Ricardo Bofill: Visions of Architecture traces a legacy that is characterized by idealism and defiance. The most comprehensive book on Bofill to date, it presents his iconic buildings and gathers spectacular new photography together with commentary from the man himself to give new insight into his life and work. This monograph stands as a testament that in the 21st century, the architect s vision is more prescient than ever.
