function bus station
contributed by etringita

The bus station of Córdoba is a work of great urban importance. With this building, the new part of the city is defined and reconciled with the historical centre and its older, more emblematic buildings. Located in front of the train station and over an avenue that connects it to the town centre, the bus station is surrounded by houses and some non-build-up areas, as is characteristic of peripheral quarters.The proposal orders the place with the creation of a space enclosed by a thick, nine metre high granite wall that delimits an inner world, evoking the city's Mosque. In the parking lot of the station we can find remains of a Mozarabic house, the union of two aqueducts and a mosque with Roman stones, also visible from the top. Natural light plays a key role in the station, where the sculptures and furniture of 'Grupo 57' makes this a welcoming place. For this building Cesar Portela won the National Architecture Prize of Spain.
