This building is located in one of the most emblematic parts of Bilbao. L-shaped, it opens out
onto the estuary and the Guggenheim Museum, right in the centre of Avenida Abandoibarra,
between the Padre Arrupe footbridge and the bridge known as the Puente de Deusto
Nowadays, this building hosts all kind of social, cultural, academic and scientific events.
It is an emblematic building designed by the architect Álvaro Siza, who has given priority to
"maintaining the scale of the place, respecting cornices and placing the ground floor at the
service of the pedestrian, open and permeable, offering views inside with huge wings that
integrate the private space in the public area and vice versa".
