Bofill offices and residende













The Cement Factory was discovered in 1973, it was an abandoned cement factory and partially in ruins, comprised of over 30 silos, underground galleries and huge engine rooms; Ricardo Bofill bought it and began renovation works.  He identified the program; The Cement Factory was to be used as architectural offices, archives, a model laboratory, and exhibition space, an apartment for him, as well as guest rooms and gardens.  He defined the space by demolishing certain structures, cleaning cement, exposing previously concealed structures and creating the landscape architecture by planting various plants such as eucalyptus, palms, olive trees and cypresses; renovation works lasted nearly two years.

Como Arquitecto la obra del señor Bofill no me convence mucho, pero en la remodelación de esta cementera ha acertado 100%, aunque ya tenía mucho ganado con el espacio que le brindaba la fábrica que no necesitaba ni una mano de pintura para ser un edificio imponente.

En el video a continuación podemos ver a Ricardito Bofill enseñandonos el palacete de su papá... nunca se me borrará de la mente lo casposo que llegó a ser y patético en Crónicas Marcianas... gran momento cuando Pau lo mandó callar.
