Bilbao Jardin

Transforming a bleak but conceptually interesting urban space, the Bilbao garden project is a beautiful piece of installation garden art.

Moving in time and with the seasons, the garden climbs the stairs, running in undulating lines of different textures and colors.  Like the famous Spanish steps in Rome, the Garden is not only designed for visitors to ascend and descend, but for them to linger and ornament themselves into the space.  The garden, designed by Diana Balmori sits between two Arata Isozaki towers leading to Santiago Calatrava's footbridge over the Nervion River.
