Design Icon: 8 Avant-Garde Buildings by Ricardo Bofill

3 of 9

Completed in 1974, the Meritxell Sanctuary in Andorra comprises an entire complex, including the remains of a medieval castle that was destroyed by a fire in 1972. Bofill's firm, inspired by the Romanesque design of the original chapel on the site, adapted the geometry and materials for new components.
