Fer­ran Adrià /​elBul­li­Foun­da­tion

From beach bar to “lab­o­ra­tory of inno­va­tion”. The his­tory of elBulli is a long one full of risky deci­sions. A con­stant search for cre­ation and inno­va­tion has cul­mi­nated in a unique project: elBul­li­Foun­da­tion. This is a new step in elBulli’s trans­for­ma­tion process, and it has found a new trav­el­ling com­pan­ion in Tele­fónica. Together, they are com­bin­ing energy and tal­ent to make dreams come true and turn pos­si­bil­i­ties into realities.


elBul­li­Foun­da­tion is elBulli’s new ven­ture that will be focus on fos­ter­ing and research­ing a cul­ture of cre­ativ­ity and inno­va­tion. Its most out­stand­ing phys­i­cal expres­sion will be the exten­sion of the for­mer elBulli restau­rant to turn it into a facil­ity for cre­ative minds from gas­tron­omy, design, the arts, tech­nol­ogy, engi­neer­ing and the sci­ences to respond to cre­ative chal­lenges. Set in the mid­dle of the Cap de Creus Nat­ural Reserve, the build­ing and its sur­round­ings will be a con­tin­u­ous lab to test and try new ideas com­ing up of the cre­ative minds work­ing there.

The elBul­li­Foun­da­tion build­ing is cur­rently being built inte­grat­ing the lat­est build­ing knowl­edge that inte­grates sus­tain­abil­ity and intel­li­gence into the building.

In the mean­time, the cre­ative team of elBul­li­Foun­da­tion is work­ing with uni­ver­si­ties, com­pa­nies, and the top tal­ent in the world to make a cen­ter for cre­ativy and inno­va­tion a reality.

Corals, sponges, par­ti­cle archi­tec­ture… the new com­plex that is to house elBul­li­Foun­da­tion will include fea­tures never seen before, pro­vid­ing the ideal stage to give free rein to cre­ativ­ity and achieve a com­mon goal — the gen­er­a­tion and dif­fu­sion of ideas. It will be a space built upon the val­ues shared by Tele­fónica I+D and Fer­ran Adrià: vision, tal­ent, com­mit­ment and strength. A unique envi­ron­ment for a unique project.
