The Zubizuri




 The Zubizuri


(Basque for “white bridge“),

also called the Campo Volantin Bridge or Puente del Campo Volantin,

is a tied arch footbridge across the Nervion River in Bilbao, Basque Country.

Designed by architect Santiago Calatrava,

the bridge links the Campo Volantin right bank and Uribitarte left bank of the river.

Since its opening, it has been subjected to praise as a symbol of the new Bilbao and as a draw for tourism.

Architectural professor Alexander Tzonis wrote:

“The intelligence, vitality, and originality of the bridge’s curved configuration challenged the ordinariness and slow decline of the urban setting, bringing a message of hope and an invitation to imagine better conditions.”
