Bilbao Port Terminal
There are projects on which architects use prefabrication because they find the idea attractive, or in some way it suits their design. This was also true of the new Cruise Terminal in Bilbao, designed by architect baragaño, but it was also the only way in which it could satisfy the extremely tight programme. ‘We won the project in competition,’ explained Sergio Baragaño, ‘and it had to be completed six months’ later. The first cruise ship was due in six months.’

Steel is the obvious choice of materials for industrial buildings, even more so if it is to be housing steel elements. So when steel maker ArcelorMittal was planning a new warehouse building in the port of Aviles in Spain, in front of its works, there was little discussion about the selection of materials.
