Many years ago now... my eldest daughter was one and a half I think, so eleven years ago now... when we were still living in London and we went for a trip to Bilbao in Spain to see the new Guggenheim. It had only just opened and we were mesmerised by its beauty and totally charmed by the then-untouched city of Bilbao. Unfortunately, we haven't been back since but I imagine Bilbao has become much more of a metropolis (or at least more used to tourists!) So, I was delighted when I came across this story in one of the architecture newsletters about the new Basque Health Department Headquarters in Bilbao. Isn't it divine? I'm not an architect but I do so love architecture and find it eternally inspiring. What I'd really like to do is to create similar patterning on my brooches... maybe a 3-D bubble not unlike the formation at the top of the building. I love that this city has continued to embrace such a brave architectural frontier. The architects are Coll-Barreu Arquitectos and you can find them here for more info about the building.
