Roaming Round the Red Wall
We explore Ricardo Bofill’s bold blue and pink Spanish palace
La Muralla Roja (‘The Red Wall’) is a mystical social housing project on Alicante’s Arcadian coastline, conceived by the idealist architect Ricardo Bofill in the late ‘60s. Bofill isn’t just an architect – he’s a visionary who uses his creativity and talent to transcend his art to a higher state of consciousness. His work gives you a sense of heaven on Earth: limitless infinity and connected oneness, allowing its inhabitants to escape their ego and inviting them to realise their true potential, if only momentarily.
