Creating a Heart in the Bay

Masterplan Bay of Pasaia, Pasaia, ES

Reconnecting people with their bay through a plan that harnesses its exceptional environmental value.

The heart of Pasaia lies in its bay. Its urban regeneration will demonstrate that Pasaia is a unique place, marked by its strong identity, landscape and history, deserves.

West 8’s competition entry for the design of the Bay of Pasaia is based on developing a new core: a maritime cluster true to its tradition, an evolution of its recent industrial history. Culture, innovation, and new economies form the basis for urban regeneration, respecting the diversity of communities’ identities.

Enhanced connectivity between the different towns around the bay and accessibility between these communities and the sea are focal points of the plan. A grand boulevard and new forms of public transportation make this possible.
