Abandoned Cement Factory Transformed Into Contemporary Castle | Barcelona

"Abandoned factories often look to me like abandoned castles: grandiose in size, with silos resembling turrets, and ominous defensive structures of unspecified purpose left to remind us of days long past. Perhaps architect Ricardo Bofill shares this idea -- in 1973, he purchased an abandoned turn-of-the-century cement factory in Barcelona and commenced a two-year renovation to transform it into a spectacular office and residence." -Lori Zimmer
