Walden 7 by Ricardo Bofill

March 03, 2017

Walden 7 by Ricardo Bofill (RBTA) is a project realised in 1975 with a vision to create a utopian co-habitation living space for people. The result is a sculptural structure that fascinates through it’s detailed considered design: ” Walden 7 embodies the concept of architectural magnitude as well as a new, enriching feature into the suburban environment which surrounds it. It attempts to provide a solution to the problems of life in today’s cities where there is a lack of community, of collective activity, of public space placed at the disposition of the individual. Walden 7 creates a distinguished space in contrast to the mediocrity of its surroundings, stimulating community life in its interiors. Walden 7 consists of a 14-storey cluster of 446 apartments, grouped around five courtyards, on top of which are two swimming pools. With few exceptions, each apartment faces both outside of the block and into one of the courtyards; at many levels, there is a complex system of bridges and balconies for access, producing a fantastic variety of vistas and enclosures. “(www.ricardobofill.com)
