basque health department headquarters by coll barreu arquitectos

while frank gehry’s guggenheim museum made the spanish town of bilbao an international destination, a slew of new projects are continuing to add to its reputation. one of the most recent additions to the cities landscape is the health department headquarters designed by coll-barreu arquitectos. the young firm’s creation is most recognizable for its cubist façade of glass. the glass sheets are placed on irregular angles reflection the city into the building. the façade is also part of the structure’s double skin frame, which helps insulation. most of the building will be home to offices while the basement will house a 150 seat auditorium.

  • I think its an awesome design–not due to how it looks like…please do consider in the sense of bringing the building alive ….how it changes “the attitude” in the different time of the day according to the light changes……ps…it integrets so well with surroundings…..
    Look is important.. fits well &the look just makethe value of it…

  • Looks like a discarded piece of paper in the dark and a jelly (gel-o) building by day.
    All hail the ‘random’ geometries. Coming to a trend near you soon.
