School of Engineers “PUENTE Building”
Surface: 4.350,00 m2
Budget: 1.957.250,00 €
Promoter: Viviendas de Vizcaya
End of work: November 2009
This expansion of the School of Engineers linked the two buildings located on both sides of the road through a “Building-Bridge” suspended on the tracks.
By means of a hanging structure and a constructive solution for the exterior enclosure of glass curtain wall, the building contains a complete educational program.
The PGOU of Bilbao contemplated generating a new “Gate” of entry to the city for road traffic, an action that has been completed in 2013, demonstrating the need for such a structural display and turning the School of Engineers into the cover letter of the city.
