Glass have had the limelight as building materials since long before because the glass is transmitted light and widened the view. It is often a tool for artistic expression. When someone design a building, the glass is being used in many way. Depending on how it is used, the building can be energy efficient, or not. Glass building is overflowing in our surrounding environment. Finding several buildings, I'm fascinated by unique glass building. That is the Basque Health Department Headquarters.
The site is located in the crossroad of two important streets of the Ensanche, designed in 2008. This structure is made up many glass of polygonal shape. The form is very unique and modernistic. The aim of the new Basque Health Department headquarters is bringing together staff in a recognizable place, in order to increase the efficiency of the service and identify easily the corporation. The project at the same time involves both economic and property profits.
