On January 14, Ricardo Bofill, a Spanish architect, founder of Taller de Arquitectura (RBTA), author of more than a thousand projects in forty countries, passed away in Barcelona. The death was officially reported by his bureau. Quim Llenas Ricardo Bofill dreamed of becoming an architect since childhood. His father, an architect, hired him to work for him and gave him all his experience. In 1956, Bofill created his first project — a guest house in Ibiza. And already in 1963, at the age of twenty-four, he opened his own office — Taller de Arquitectura in Barcelona. It will continue to function under the leadership of Bofill’s two sons.
