The workshop will take place at CosmoCaixa – Spain’s first interactive museum now remodeled keeping the Modernista style of the 1904 original building.
The Science Museum of Barcelona, opened in 1981, was the first interactive museum of Spain. The original building, from 1904, was built by the architect Josep Domènech I Estepà following the modernist style from the time, to host the Amparo de Santa Lucía asylum for blind people, which was operating for 75 years. When it closed, “la Caixa” Foundation ordered the architects Jordi Garcés and Enric Sòria a remodeling and ampliation of the building to accommodate the Science Museum.
