This will be BIVA, the new bullring of Bilbao

The winning company BMF has presented the Vista Alegre remodeling

 

Bilbao Vista Alegre, BIVA, is the name of the Bilbao Bullring after the ambitious remodeling of the BMF group, represented by Pablo, Óscar and Manuel from Casa Chopera; and by Antonio Barrera and Octavio Figueroa from the Baillères group. The project will turn the bullring into a multipurpose space, revitalizing the bullfighting section and adding the cultural and social.

Adaptation of the accesses, waterproofing of the surfaces, change of the seats, remodeling of the corridors, toilets, restoration of the facade, creation of new spaces such as a press room and a restaurant, bars, redesign of the museum...in addition to the installation in the ring of a cover for holding off-season events, are some of the major changes that aim to place Vista Alegre as a great reference of the city of Biscay and whose project has been made by the architect Diego Garteiz.

The company has also advanced that the General Bullfights 2020 will consist of eight bullfights, one horse-bullfight, the great novelty of a steer-bullfight and a contest of trimms. They also want to expand the activity in season for what the ‘Zezenfest’ is created, consisting of a steer-bullfight and the traditional bullfighting festival; and the Iván Fandiño Memorial, with promotional steer-bullfights between June and July.
