Museu Can Framis. Fundació Vila Casas

Museu Can Framis. Fundació Vila Casas

Can Framis, a factory built at the end of the 18th century, was originally owned by the Framis family. Over the years it fell into disuse, becoming a monument to the industry of the area.

Currently a museum of contemporary painting, it houses the picture collection of the Fundació Vila Casas. It has around 300 works on show dating from the 1960's onwards by a wide range of artists born or living in Catalonia. Temporary exhibitions are held at the Can Framis Espai A0.

The restoration project and museum were designed by the BAAS Arquitectes practice, which has been awarded a number of prizes, including the 2009 City of Barcelona Architecture and Urban Design Prize. The architectural ensemble is set among gardens: an oasis that contrasts the human scale of the 19th-century building with the monumental contemporary architecture.
