Venue & Useful Info

The conference will take place in the auditorium (Bizkaia Aretoa) of the University of the Basque Country.

Bizkaia Aretoa

The Bizkaia Aretoa is a piece of modernist architecture designed by the architect Álvaro Siza. It is a part of the urban ‘renewal’ project that has transformed Bilbao in the last two decades into a “postindustrial” city. It is significant for its architectural features and for the urban transformation it has contributed to – the regeneration of the previously industrial area of Abandoibarra. An L-shaped structure, it opens out onto the estuary and the Guggenheim Museum, right in the centre of Bilbo, in front of the University of Deusto.
