Project: Cruise Ship Terminal
Location: Bilbao, Vizacaya, Spain
The new Cruise Ship Terminal for the Port of Bilbao is an "orthogonal metallic prism" dissected along the port's quayside. Clad in jet-black steel panels, the terminal building balances a contextual industrial aesthetic with an elegant contemporary character. Large skylights flood the terminal's interior with light, reducing the need for endless florescent fixtures across the deep space. The assertive architectural presence creates a sense of place that is too often absent from transportation hubs.
