After graduating from Architecture schools in Barcelona and Geneva, Ricardo Bofill created in 1963 his Taller de Arquitectura (Architecture Workshop), a studio composed of architects, engineers, sociologists and philosophers.
Bofill is one of the major representatives of the post-modern style in contemporary architecture. His projects tend to develop starting from the idea of a vertical city. His initiatives bestow great importance to the use of new technologies and are the result of multidisciplinary work.
He is author of many theoretical works, and has been awarded renowned prizes. Bofill’s career is marked by his urban planning for cities such as Prague, Madrid, Seville or Montpellier (Antigone) and emblematic buildings such as Madrid’s Conference Centre, Barcelona Airport, the National Theatre of Catalonia and the Donnelley Building in Chicago.
