location Bilbao
function subway station
contributed by HJI

The curved glassy structures - or Fosteritos - that announce the inner-city Line 1 stations at street level are as unique to Bilbao as the Art Nouveau Metro entrances are to Paris, their shape evocative of inclined movement and generated by the profile of the tunnels themselves. The canopies admit natural light by day, and are illuminated at night, forming welcoming beacons in the streetscape. On Line 2, where deep-cut stations made it impossible to use escalators, banks of large-capacity lifts are grouped in threes to create iconic and easily recognisable entrance points.
