Architecture photographer Marc Goodwin is continually adding to his world atlas of architecture offices. While photographing studios in Barcelona, Goodwin spent a little extra time at the post-World War I cement factory Ricardo Bofill transformed into his studio, gardens, and residence. After the cement-filled silos were uncovered, Bofill defined a new structure and program for his architectural fortress.

"The factory is a magic place which strange atmosphere is difficult to be perceived by a profane eye. I like the life to be perfectly programmed here, ritualized, in total contrast with my turbulent nomad life” states Ricardo Bofill on his website.

Now, Bofill’s team works within what was once silos. Bofill asserts that by metamorphosing the building he proved form and function are independent of one another. With enough skill, designers can successfully reprogram any space.
