CaixaForum entrance | Arata Isozaki | 2002 | Barcelona
CaixaForum Barcelona is an art gallery sponsored by Barcelona bank 'la Caixa', and opened in 2002 in a former factory.
The building called the "Casaramona factory" was originally commissioned as a textile factory and built by Josep Puig i Cadafalch. It was completed in 1911.
Recently it was opened as a museum in 2002. The building was restored and a new entrance was built, designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki.
