summary The city of Bilbao has suffered in the last decade a deep transformation. After a glorious industrial past, Bilbao was in 1990 a depressed city, and the strategies necessary to transform an industrial city into a service capital were no simple due to the high level of pollution and unemployment rate. The "Bilbao Metropoli-30" Association was created to coordinate the synergetic action of all the involved institutions: City Hall, Basque Country and Spanish Governments, financial institutions, transport companies, airport and port, etc. But it was also necessary the acceptance of the public opinion to recover the illusion and the lost pride of the city. The desolated social scene was not adequate for revolutionary designs like the winding Frank Gehry's Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, or the cavernous Norman Foster's underground. This work pretends to show the means and strategies, especially computational, that allowed the transformation of Bilbao with an enthusiastic citizen support.
