From The Outside This Is A Derelict Cement Factory. But Go Inside And… 1

Bofill Cement Factory, December 18, 2013–No, this isn’t just an old factory, crumbling to pieces. It used to be a cement factory, sure, but now this sprawling structure is the incredible home and studio of architect Ricardo Bofill. He discovered The Cement Factory in 1973 and it was abandoned and partially in ruins. It couldn’t have looked like much, but Ricardo saw its true potential. He bought it and began renovating. He turned it into something you can barely recognize as the factory it used to be.

Over the course of two years, the architect completely transformed the industrial building located in Barcelona, Spain.
