It was built between 1964 and 1970 and has been portrayed by the artist Sílvia Martínez-Palou. The exhibition also includes photographs by Francesc Català-Roca and pieces designed by Moragas for various projects. The second building is known as La Ricarda and was designed by Antoni Bonet Castellana. It is located in Prat de Llobregat, was built between 1949 and 1962 and has been portrayed by the artists Bea Sarrias. Visitors will also find a photographic report by Català-Roca in this part of the exhibition, as well as an armchair designed by Bonet specially for La Ricarda. Finally, the third building is located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and is known as Auditori Alfredo Kraus. It was designed by Òscar Tusquets in 1992. Tusquets himself portrayed the building for the exhibition.

Each building is assigned its own hall at the foundation's headquarters and the exhibition also marks the official opening of its new audiovisual room, where Un dia a La Ricarda by Bea Sarrias and Morrosko Vila-San-Juan will be screened.
