la muralla roja

Muralla_Roja_Calpe_Spain_Ricardo_Bofill_Taller_Arquitectura_008.jpg

when i was in new york, i had a quick conversation with one of the other interns about artists we enjoy. i said that i liked matisse because i'm inspired by flat, geometric, and colorful works of art. he said he was the complete opposite. those things did not inspire him.

so i'm led to wonder, how would he feel about la muralla roja? ricardo bofill is a spanish architect whose work triggers everything i love. the colors are so vibrant and these photos frame the architecture so beautifully. i love how it appears flat, but also so three dimensional. it's almost as though you could walk into the photo and get lost among the stairs. these images are all courtesy of ricardo bofill and you can find out a little more about la muralla roja over here. i'm just itching to go to spain to see this in real life.
