BOFILL, Guillem
(d. 1427, Girona)


Catalan architect. He began working as a stonemason in the works of the church of Sant Feliu in Girona (1381-83), later moving to the Cathedral of Girona, where in 1404 he was appointed master builder. In 1416 he was promoted, supported by the bishop Dalmau de Mur, to the board of architects that had to decide the way to continue the works. Here he imposed his criterion of doing so with a single nave that would increase the height of the nave extraordinarily. His project was approved in 1417. The works continued under his direction until 1427, probably the date of his death.
