Museum Can Framis in Barcelona

The Museum Can Framis presents itself in a pleasantly restrained way, situated among the mostly new multi-story commercial buildings within the former industrial quarter of Poble Nou, located between Barcelona’s center and the coast. While only two commercial buildings and a smokestack remain of the factory’s former four blocks, it comprises an important testimony to the then-important textile industry. The architects complemented the almost parallel existing buildings with a new reinforced concrete wing between them. Matching light grey color covers the quarry stone ­facade and the building apertures infilled with masonry in the existing construction, joining new and old in harmony.
