Bofill proves the point; There is no industrial space that can not be reused.
We’ve seen the warehouse turned loft, the bunker turned art museum, the garage turned art gallery… In my opinion Bofill has taken it one step further, turning a former cement factory into a multi purpose structure including his architectural office, exhibition space, apartment and more. An absolutely admirable use and reuse of space and structure.
“to be an architect means to understand space, to understand space organized by man, to decipher the spontaneous movements and behavior of people, and to detect the needs of change that they might unconsciously express. It is essential to track down these issues if we want to contribute with our personal work to the history of architecture.”
Well said and well achieved Mister Bofill.
PS: Did I mentioned he had completed this project in 1975.
