A list of modern and minimalist structures around the world I would want to visit someday.
This postmodern apartment complex is one of Ricardo Bofill’s famous buildings. The building’s design is puzzle-like with different geometric cuts and colorful walls. Visitors are even free to rent rooms within the building! 📸: Pexels/ Dana Geisser
Partida Manzanera, 3, 03710 Calpe, Alicante, Spain
Walden-7 is another apparent complex by Ricardo Bofill. It was completed in 1975. The building is almost labyrinth like with the way it was designed. An interesting feature of the building is its asymmetry and variation of each room!
Ctra. Reial, 106, 08960 Sant Just Desvern, Barcelona, Spain
his contemporary museum was designed by Ricardo Legorreta. The museum houses various exhibits from science to art. The minimalist landscape even compliments the geometric structure of the building!
Blvd. Antonio Rocha Cordero S/N, Tierra Blanca, 78364 San Luis, S.L.P., Mexico
Also called as the Palace of Rituals. This was designed by Victor Djorbenadze. The building draws different inspirations from expressionism to medieval architecture. It is now a private property but can be rented out for events. Surprisingly, it was formerly a residence of an oligarch. 😱
21 Bochorma St, T'bilisi, Georgia
The building was designed by Giovanni Guerrini, Ernesto Bruno La Padula and Mario Romano. This building exemplifies Fascist architecture. Interestingly, architecture around the EUR represents what Italian architecture would look like if the fascist regime continued in Italy.
Quadrato della Concordia, 3, 00144 Roma RM, Italy
The building was designed by American architect Louis Kahn. The building houses spacious laboratories. Founder Jonas Salk directed Kahn to create a welcoming and inspiring environment. As a result, he designed spacious rooms with ample natural light. There are two underground floors but this has not stopped Kahn from giving these spaces some daylight. He created light wells from both sides of the building to give the lower floors daylight.
