Plaza Cardenal Orbe, is the cultural center not only of the city of Ermua, but of the entire Vizcaya area. A historical place that reflects the character of the Basque population, which shines during the holidays. That is why it is proposed to intervene in the square with a large contemporary cover, mirrored wings that reflect the city of Ermua and the life of the citizens.The remodeling of the kiosk together with the new roof allows the creation of a new singular element that grants an original and innovative character to the space and the city.
