HISTORY OF THE VENUE
Palo Alto began in 1989 as a space where productions related to photography, design, architecture, painting, sculpture and other creative activities were accommodated.
It became a foundation in 1998, in agreement with Barcelona City Council, as a Centre for Cultural and Artistic Creation. This consolidated the project, giving it stability to continue with the renovation of the old factory, which dates back to 1856.
The new project for the future of Palo Alto is structured around three strategic pillars: Opening up to the neighbourhood (with activities for all audiences and linked to neighbourhood associations), as a sustainable space (green lung in the neighbourhood, a reference of biodiversity due to the more than 200 plant species that occupy it, but also a benchmark in sustainable management and conservation of industrial heritage) and consolidating itself as a sectoral benchmark for design and creativity.
