A privileged place for science
The building’s history started more than a century ago, in 1904, when the architect Josep Domènech i Estapà used the Modernista style of the time to construct the Amparo de Santa Lucía institution, in operation for 75 years.
In 1979 the “la Caixa” Foundation commissioned the architects Jordi Garcés and Enric Sòria to remodel and enlarge the building to house the Science Museum, becoming Spain’s first interactive museum dealing with scientific themes. The subsequent refurbishment to transform the museum into CosmoCaixa was designed by the architects Robert and Esteve Terradas and the new centre opened its doors on the 25th of September 2004.
Care was taken during the remodelling to conserve and restore the walls of the old Modernista building with its brick finish, considerably enlarging the old facility and adding modern touches of glass and steel. On a site covering more than 50,000 square metres and with a floor area of 30,000 square metres, the current venue occupies four times more space than the first Science Museum. This new facility includes nine floors, six of them underground but with natural light, as well as a large public plaza offering views of the city.
