Interesting Facts About CaixaForum Barcelona

  • The history of this building, built-in 1912 by the modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, was very eventful. The textile factory, commissioned by the industrialist Casimir Casaramona, was built with great simplicity, with exposed brick and forged iron from the Can Ballarín workshop.
  • However, the Casaramona factory closed its doors only seven years after its inauguration since it went bankrupt after the 1919 strike. Later, it served as a warehouse during the Barcelona International Exposition in 1929, and, as of 1940, It was set up as stables and a mobile park area for the National Police. In 1963 ”la Caixa” acquired the building and commissioned its renovation to turn it into a cultural center. 
  • The recovery and rehabilitation works were carried out by the prominent architects Roberto Luna, the main author of the project; Robert Brufau, responsible for structures; Javier Asarta, head of the restoration; and Arata Isozaki, architect of the new patio and main entrance. The building was inaugurated as CaixaForum Barcelona in 2002.
