Mono.Kultur 36 – Ricardo Bofill: The Future of the Past
Mono.kultur is an independent interview magazine from Berlin. Each issue interviews just one person, from various fields of culture. Every issue is carefully edited and produced slightly differently in keeping with the artist of choice.
One of Europe’s most famous and prolific architects of the last century, Bofill has designed more than 1000 projects, of which over 300 have been built. His portfolio includes furniture designs, city plans, and everything in between. Stylistically, his range is just as wide: there’s social, utopian housing; Spanish coastal vernacular; modular metabolism; Postmodernism and Neo-classicism.
Along with images of Bofill's work, this issue includes an introductory essay and interview by Carson Chan.
