Bilbao is celebrating 25 Years of Urban Regeneration

BILBAO Ría 2000. Invitación 25 Aniversario_Page_1.jpg

Balmori Associates reconnected the city to the river with Abandoibarra master plan, Campa de los Ingleses Park, and Plaza Euskadi. An idea that became a reality in 2012, creating a greener and more walkable city where the public space became the connecting link and icon in the urban fabric  of  the city of Bilbao.

Moderated by Ann Whiteside, Librarian/Assistant Dean for Information Services, Loeb Library, Harvard Graduate School of Design with Noémie Lafaurie-Debany, Balmori Associates, Tomas Hernandez, Alexander Gorlin Architects and Mark Rylander, Mark Rylander Architect.

Image and text from the exhibition at the World Financial Center, An Installation of the Cycles of Landscape, February 21-March 5, 1989

"This is not a flower show. This installation explores landscape and nature in its various stages of development, presenting the dynamic process of change, rather than displaying plantlife at its peak, as the typical flower show does. Cycles of fading, wilting and dying are as integral to the design of a landscape as are budding, flowering and growing. The show visualizes beginnings and ends, perspectives of time, cycles of life and death that give measure to our world."
