City Lab Bilbao


Bilbao City Lab is an initiative by ETSAUN that takes Bilbao and its area of influence as a working region for projects and learning activities at the University of Navarra School of Architecture. The singularity and complexity of Bilbao and its region allow us to propose this metropolitan area as laboratory and case study at different scales and subjects (Urbanism, Architecture, Landscape, Design or History). In consequence, ETSAUN and Bilbao Council have selected projects of common interest to work with students. The aim is to develop sites and functional programs of interest for the city and its citizens.

Both briefs and results are exhibited through the map and ETSAUN digital Bitacora. The aim is to share academic proposals with society in order to address jointly the growth of the city and the contemporary human habitat.
