SAGNIER’S MODERNISM

September 30, 2011

With a career spanning some fifty years and straddling the 19th and 20th centuries, his work coincided with the explosion of Modernism.

The exhibition “The city of Sagnier. Modernist, eclectic and monumental”, at the CaixaForum, resurrects the work of this architect through photographs from the period, models, postcards and audiovisual displays. The buildings designed by Sagnier include the Tibidabo church, the Palau de la Justícia (Justice Palace), the new Customs Building and the “la Caixa” headquarters, on Via Laietana.

Date: until 8th of January, 2012          Place: CaixaForum, Av. Francesc Ferrer Guàrdia, 6 Tickets: free entrance          Opening hours: Every day from 10:00 to 20:00h.
