Introducing La Fabrica, or “The Factory” built in 1973 by renowned architect Ricardo Bofill.
The original cement factory, dating back from the first period of the industrialization of Catalonia, Spain in the latter half of the 19th century.
The silos were not built at once or as a whole but was a series of additions as the various chains of production became necessary.
According to renowned architect Ricardo Bofill who revamped the designs of the silos, he and his team already imagined future spaces and found out that the different visual and aesthetics trends that had developed since World War I coexisted in the silos. So keeping his eyes moving like a kaleidoscope, he redesigned the silos with surreallist, abstract, and even beautiful brutalist designs. Check it out below.
