while frank gehry’s guggenheim museum made the spanish town of bilbao an international destination, a slew of new projects are continuing to add to its reputation. one of the most recent additions to the cities landscape is the health department headquarters designed by coll-barreu arquitectos. the young firm’s creation is most recognizable for its cubist façade of glass. the glass sheets are placed on irregular angles reflection the city into the building. the façade is also part of the structure’s double skin frame, which helps insulation. most of the building will be home to offices while the basement will house a 150 seat auditorium.
