File documents an unexecuted project for the Abando Passenger Interchange, in Bilbao, Spain. The office of James Stirling, Michael Wilford and Associates was appointed in 1985 to design the Passenger Interchange, including a dance and music school. The building programme was revised and enlarged in 1991 and design work began in 1992. This second project was developed after the death of James Stirling in 1992 by the firm of Michael Wilford and Partners. Material in this file was produced between 1974 and 2000.

File contains reference drawings, presentation drawings and a large number of design development and working drawings. Photographic materials include views of the site by photographers Millar and Harris, aerial views of existing railway stations by photographers FOAT S.L., and views of models by photographer Chris Edgcombe, John Donat Photography and by Kandor Modelmakers. Textual records include photographs, a study model and model parts. Drawings, photographic materials and textual records also relate to several Abando Passenger Interchange exhibitions.
