Santander’s new building


A work in progress. In the foreground a sample of the finishing fabric. In the background the skeleton of the new building. Girders!


The southwest face, which towers over an amphitheatre and which will have a giant screen for open air cinema.
For rainy days there will be huge, light and airy indoor public spaces with views of the bay. It pleases me that this has all been achieved without prejudicing the amazing, beautiful, historic spaces that already existed in the immediate area.
I like Renzo Piano’s first swirly sketches.
