Ricardo Bofill Abroad: The International Projection of the Taller de Arquitectura.

Following Ricardo Bofill’s passing in 2022, the aim of issue 15 of Histories of Post-War Architecture Journal is to analyse the international trajectory of the Taller de Arquitectura (RBTA) from 1970 to the present day. This will be achieved through a critical, up-to-date approach. The architectural output of Ricardo Bofill outside Spain is the subject of a case study that aims to contribute to academic and public debate. Bofill’s work is cross-cutting, bold, and polemic, making him a controversial yet indispensable figure in the recent history of international architecture.

The following are potential areas of research that can be explored without limitations:
- RBTA beyond Spain: relations between Spanish and international works.
- The reception of the work of RBTA in international mass media.
- The “French Years” of RBTA: between urban planning, political management and relations with power.
- The international networks of members of the Taller’s professional team.
