La Muralla Roja, or “The Red Wall” in Spanish, is an amazing feat of surreal dreamlike architecture built on the steep coastline of the Alicante province in Spain in 1973.
Born from the mind of Spanish (Catalan) Architect Ricardo Boffil’s geometric masterpiece is a fortress of high zig zag stairwells, symmetrical walls and bold complimentary hues of violet, indigo, sky blue, red and pink.
Drawing influences from Africa’s adobe towers and the Mediterranean kasbah style, an intense optical composition of colour and shape is created. Boffil’s work combines art and architecture magnificently which makes it a perfect base to draw creativity and inspiration from.
