About Zubizuri

Zubizuri means white bridge, it is also called Campo Volantin Footbridge. The bridge crosses the river Nervion in Bilbao in northern Spain.
Zubizuri are designed by the Spanish architect and engineer Santiego Calatrava, who also designed the airport in Bilbao and many other bridges in the world.
At night, the bridge has an elegant lighting in the bridge deck, which is made of glass, that lights up the bridge. Zubizuri was opened to pedestrian and bicycle traffic in 1997, same time the Guggenheim Museum opened.
