Coliseum by rossendgricasas

El 1936 el Foment de les Arts Decoratives (FAD) estableció su sede en la cúpula del edificio, donde se mantuvo hasta 1971. Esta nueva sede fue inaugurada por Lluís Companys, presidente de la Generalidad de Cataluña. Contaba con dos pisos; el primero decorado con frescos de Evarist Móra. El segundo, usado como sala de exposiciones, era un espacio octogonal, rodeado de columnas, con decoración de Santiago Marco.
En 1951 el FAD organizó en este espacio el primer Salón del Hogar Moderno, posteriormente convertido en Expohogar. En 1960 el FAD cedió su espacio para albergar el primer proyecto de Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona.
