The new Library of the University of Deusto is open to students, researchers, institutions and companies worldwide. It seeks to pursue pedagogical innovation, while at the same time offering a dynamic and flexible architectural environment, in accordance with the new European Space for Higher Education. In this regard, the open access facilities have been conceived as a space where users may find the best conditions for learning and research. The development of the library must be seen in context of the wide range of actions carried out by Bilbao Town Council in the last few years, which seeks to consolidate Bilbao as a city of knowledge. The deep changes that this city has undergone have facilitated, among other things, the expansion of university campuses in the city centre, as in the case of the new library. The building is divided into five floors above ground and another five underground, all equipped with modern electronic resources.

The spiel sounds impressive, but dissapointing as you can't actually view the inside without a pass. I was quickly sent away by what looks like airport security...
The new University of Deusto Library is integrated into the Abandoibarra area, facing the Guggenheim Museum. The facilities have been planned as a space where university students can find the best environment for learning. Guggenheim Museum Bilbao Spain

very simple program, and much better at night, she reveals her insides elegantly, as if not to show all... one last thing- the seating area frames the Guggenheim-which is interesting that Moneo is paying homage to to gehry.
