Ricardo Bofill: The Future of the Past
Text auf Englisch
5,00 €

‘It is enough to say that Ricardo Bofill is one of Europe’s most famous and prolific architects of the last century. To add any more is to inevitably leave out too much.’ Spanish architect and enfant terrible Ricardo Bofill talks to mono.kultur about fifty years of architecture, the vagaries of ambition and how Modernism killed the city. Visually, this latest issue offers a disorienting journey of architectural splendour with plenty of previously unpublished images from the archives of Ricardo Bofill (as well as the odd film still of naked bodies). Using partial high gloss varnish throughout, it juxtaposes the natural and the artificial, the intellectual and the sexual, the disciplined and the decadent.
