CaixaForum Madrid

CaixaForum Madrid is a 21st century sociocultural centre which opens its doors to ancient, modern and contemporary art, music and poetry festivals, multimedia art, debates on current affairs, social conferences and family and educational workshops.

Its spectacular premises, in Paseo del Prado, near the three major museums of the Art Walk, the Prado, the Thyssen and the Reina Sofía, are one of the new icons of our city. The renovation of the building that housed the old Mediodía electric power station was carried out by the Herzog & De Meuron architectural studio and it has two characteristics that make it easily recognisable: its vertical garden and its apparent state of "levitation".

CaixaForum has an area of over 2,000 square metres, encompassing exhibition halls, an auditorium with seating for 322 people and various multipurpose conference rooms. A café, a shop/bookstore and a restaurant round out the centre’s amenities.
