Avinguda Marquès de Comillas, 13. (Open Map)


One of the masterpieces of industrial modernism

CaixaForum is a former yarn and textile factory that was designed by Puig i Cadafalch in 1911. It spent most of the last century in a sorry state, acting briefly as a police barracks and then falling into dereliction.

Fundació La Caixa, the charitable arm of Catalonia's largest savings bank, bought it and set about rebuilding.
