Firemen House

Built | 2012 | Bilbao | Offices, Infrastructure | The soil itself is unstable. It is uncertain. It is the result of having quickly filled an open mine, with pits up to 50 m deep, which formed a cavernous place in its physical reality and its memory.
Upstream, other mine sites have been transformed, also visible from the site, which confirm the history of this exchange between matter and soil, the life of the city and that of men, the densification of the territory and the air.
Above this vacillating place, buildings do not have any mass. Folded aluminum sheets acquire enough inertia to be supported in the air.
The inner areas of the Firemen House are emptied towards the valley. At the same time, like the old fire stations, they take the public presence of the building to a new and large urban square.
The building accommodates the central Civil Protection services for a one million people urban area.
In these buildings, there is still a reference to some industrial constructions, those building-machines or process decanters that have transformed the history of the city and set off the lives of its people.
