Posted on May 13, 2014

The Historical Archive of the Basque Country is located in María Díaz de Haro Street, close to the Gran Via, in the City of Bilbao, Spain. The building includes a main lobby, reception area, several exhibition rooms, a garden, a reading room and documentation consultation area, administration areas, laboratories, and documentation processing areas. The main façade has been designed as a vibrating glass front that increases the perception of the building, breaking with the flatness of the street and emphasizing its location.  The outer glass skin is printed with extracts of texts from some of the documents preserved within the archive. The interior of the building have opted for double height ceilings, and the use of natural light and ventilation has been maximized.
