Antoni Tapies Foundation, Barcelona
One of the prime study visits for Art and Design groups in Barcelona, oriiginally founded in 1984 by the famous artist Antoni Tapies and designed to promote the study of modern contemporary art , the Fundació opened its doors in June 1990 in the building of the former Editorial Montaner i Simon publishing house, the work of the Modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner.
It was also restored and refurbished by the architects Roser Amadó and Lluís Domènech Girbau. Originally constructed between 1880 and 1885, at an early stage of the evolution of Catalan Modernism, the building was the first in the Eixample district to integrate industrial typology and technology, combining exposed brick and iron, into the fabric of the city centre.
