Art of the 20th Century: Works, Movements and Practitioners – Who could possibly have forecast on New Year’s Eve 1899 that, one hundred years later, painting and sculpture would be only options, not prerequisites? The term “art” has been defined and redefined so many times over the last 100 years that it has gained entirely new social, political, and technological meanings.

ART TALK: Ricardo Bofill. #architecture #bofill #ricardobofill #lesespacesdabraxas #Spain #Paris

Ricardo Bofill


Our love for architect, Ricardo Bofill goes way way back.  He combines such a wisteria and yet a form of structure that is pleasing to our eye. Our love for Spain and our love for art made us think of his creative structures today.

The old abandoned cement factory now turned into an enchanting gallery is remarkable. Just outside of Barcelona, Ricardo converted the abandoned Sansón Cement Factory, which dates back to 1921 into his incredible home and headquarters for his architect studio.

There is just something about Ricardo, I cannot take my eyes off his creations and I am in love with Les Espaces d’Abraxas, Paris.
