CaixaForum Barcelona es un centro cultural gestionado por la La Caixa a través de su fundación como parte de la Obra Social de la entidad. Está pensado para todos los públicos y ofrece una amplia oferta cultural, artística y educativa. Se encuentra en la montaña de Montjuïc (Barcelona) y ocupa el edificio de la antigua fábrica Casaramona, de estilo modernista y proyectada por Josep Puig i Cadafalch, habiendo sido reformado éste para su nuevo uso

Construcción1909-1912 (edificio original) 2000-2002 (reforma)

El edificio constituía la fábrica propiedad de Casimir Casaramona i Puigcercós, industrial algodonero, especializado en la confección de mantas y toallas, que necesitaba un nuevo edificio para sustituir su antigua fábrica que había ardido. Casaramona encargó el proyecto a Josep Puig i Cadafalch, uno de los arquitectos más destacados del modernismo catalán, que proyectó una fábrica modélica, una construcción horizontal, constituida por un conjunto de naves de una sola planta, que facilita el traslado de mercancías mediante un sistema de calles internas que a la vez también servían de cortafuegos, un sistema similar fue utilizado en la construcción del Hospital de Sant Pau.

La Fundación "La Caixa" adquirió en 2002 el edificio, y decidió restaurarlo, modernizándolo y adaptándolo para usos culturales y sociales. Estas reformas conformaron el actual centro cultural CaixaForum de Barcelona.

Construccion original 1909-1912 2000-2002 reconstruccion.

The building was originally commissioned as a textile factory by Casimir Casaramona i Puigcercós, and built by the famous Catalan architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch. Called the "Casaramona factory", it was completed in 1911, and the same year won the City Council's award for best industrial building. It closed in 1918, but reopened as a warehouse in 1929. In 1940 the building was used by the Spanish National Police Force, and it was used as such until "la Caixa" bought it in 1963. It was opened as a museum in February 2002.The building was restored prior to its opening,and a new entrance was built, designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, in a process that included firing 100,000 bricks to match the original ones. The museum, which opened in spring 2002, has almost three acres of exhibition space, a media library, auditorium, classrooms and a restaurant. Visitors descend by escalator to the basement lobby, adorned by a Sol LeWitt mural, then rise again to the exhibition spaces on the ground floor, within the crenelated brickwork.
