The CaixaForum Zaragoza; a new cultural and social centre in Zaragoza, capital of Aragón has opened its doors to the public. This outstanding, iconic building designed by the Carme Pinós architectural studio, has a clear goal of providing a living space at the service of people in which culture plays a key role as a tool for social cohesion and integration.

This will be achieved by hosting exhibitions of all kinds, devoted to art, science and social issues as well as activities for all audiences. The doors open with a major inaugural project: Sensitive Planes and Narratives in the Image, two simultaneous exhibitions featuring works from the organisation’s collections, aimed at bringing contemporary art to the great public in an educational and enjoyable way.

The new complex opened by La Caixa Foundation in Zaragoza symbolises the commitment of this financial institution to Aragón and its citizens and makes the capital of the Aragónese region the seventh Spanish city to host a CaixaForum centre. With its two large exhibition rooms and underground auditorium, Pinós’ design is adapted perfectly to the CaixaForum philosophy and to the concept of a living space at the service of all citizens.

This innovative building has already become a landmark within the new urban spaces developed in Zaragoza; and has already received several awards including the Second ACHE (Scientific and Technical Association for Structural Concrete) Prize for Building.
