Walden 7. This incredible building on the outskirts of Barcelona was designed by Ricardo Bofill, and named after the B. F. Skinner sci-fi novel Walden Two, which depicts a utopian society. It’s an extraordinary space with dramatic and arresting shifts in texture, colour and symmetry. I managed to sneak in and take a few photos before being asked to leave, but please have a look at photos elsewhere, particularly the ones of it just built in what was the industrial district, and the vast lobby which was too dark for my iphone camera.
