Hello everyone. I was told about this thread so I thought it might be a good idea to post some pictures of the area here.

Actually there's not too much to say about the construction of the tower (the hole just keeps growing deeper and deeper) but the pictures look great, and they can be useful to make yourselves an idea about the progress of the works in the area.

I took them on a really sunny and blue-skyed day, so everything looks really beautiful

As you may know from this thread, a new Main Library is being built for the private University of Deusto. It's design is by spanish award winnig arquitect Rafael Moneo, using opaque glass to cover the facade. Here you can see a housing building near to the library.

The nearby street has just been rearranged with lamps and vegetation.

Over the black layer they put another one coloured in green. If you look closely you may see the entrance to the car park.

On the other side of the Square we can see the first crane for internationally known Krier's housing building

Great pictures Adema.

What are those rows of rusty metal ribs on the foundations?

As Cesar Pelli's Masterplan takes shape the area starts to shine with potential, the old buildings are very well restored and the Red Arch really makes a colorful contrast ..... cheers ntx, Lezuck & AdemA
