The Bilbao Bizkaia Kutxa (2011), UPV/EHU building is in Bilbao’s old port area. This building belongs to Bilbao Bizkaia Kutxa but is used by Basque Country University. This area was deeply transformed due to an ambitious project. In a complicated placement, Álvaro Siza projects a building totally open towards the city. The building, in L shape, shows a design that tries to reduce the impact of construction in the area. The architect seeks neutral spaces and a balance between the building and its surrounding area.
