A jewel of industrial Modernisme restored for everyone to enjoy
CaixaForum Barcelona opened its doors in 2002, giving a new life to one of Barcelona’s foremost Modernista buildings. This old textile factory, located at the foot of the hill of Montjuïc, was commissioned by the entrepreneur Casimir Casaramona to Josep Puig i Cadafalch, one of the three most representative Catalan architects of Modernisme together with Antoni Gaudí and Domènech i Montaner.
Past and present, tradition and modernity unite in this unique example of Catalan industrial Modernista architecture from the early 20th century. For this factory’s design Puig i Cadafalch was awarded the Annual Prize for Artistic Buildings in 1913 and it was declared a Historical Monument of National Interest in 1976.
12,000 m² dedicated to spreading culture
Since it was inaugurated CaixaForum has become one of the most dynamic, active and lively cultural venues in the city with an extensive programme of social, cultural and educational interest for all kinds of audiences.
