russian visual designer elizaveta ivanova presents an homage to ricardo bofill with a comprehensive reinterpretation of the architect’s monumental home and studio ‘la fabrica.’ the existing project occupies a 3,100 square-meter cement factory located near barcelona, spain and is defined by its lofty halls of exposed concrete and its rows of arched windows, projecting upward with exaggerated verticality. ivanova imagines the iconic building with a refreshed residential atmosphere, maintaining the brutalist industrial style, picturesque and overgrown with plant-life.

elizaveta ivanova re-envisions ‘la fabrica,’ designed by ricardo bofill taller de arquitectura, as a respectful continuation of the building’s transformative heritage. first built in the post world war I era, the cement factory stands as an architectural timeline of flexible programming, having been transformed by the mid-century architect into a home, studio, and exhibition space. now, the visual designer presents a new vision of the monumental building, preserving many of the original interior elements while proposing a contemporary revitalization. at the same time, ivanova exhibits her mastery of 3D visualization as she digitally models and renders the project, including the overall structure, the interior elements, and its overgrown vegetation.
