The Centre for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona—CCCB) is a multidisciplinary cultural institution that deals with the key challenges of contemporary society through different languages and formats, with an extensive programme that includes major thematic exhibitions, series of conferences and literary meetups, film screenings, workshops and festivals. 

The CCCB is deeply rooted in Barcelona and open to the world: it works in collaboration with international institutions and agents and also maintains ties with artists, creative collectives, curators and independent cultural agents based in and around Barcelona, providing them with support and visibility and leveraging their creative capital.

The CCCB, which opened in 1994, is located in the ancient Casa de Caritat, an almshouse built in 1802 on the site of a medieval monastery. The architects Helio Piñón and Albert Viaplana replaced one of the wings of the original building with a prismatic body 30 m high. The result is a spectacular glazed façade that becomes, with its game of reflections, a mirror of the landscape and a privileged viewpoint over the city. The project was awarded the FAD and Ciutat de Barcelona Architecture Prizes.
