The ”la Caixa” Foundation presents the project for the renovation and expansion of a warehouse to transform it into the ArtStudio CaixaForum Collection, a centre that will bring together and promote the ”la Caixa” Foundation Contemporary Art Collection, consisting of 1,069 works by 445 artists.

The building, with an area of 10,000 square meters and entailing an investment of 12 million euros, will be located in the Cultural District of L’Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona), a new area that the city aims to develop into a cultural hub dedicated to the creative community.

The new ArtStudio CaixaForum is conceived as a state-of-the-art centre for research and conservation of works of art, as well as a think-tank with the mission of bringing together professionals from the fields of art, culture and thought at the national and international level.
