Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

Synopsis
Shows Frank Gehry’s extraordinary museum building in northern Spain that resembles a gigantic abstract sculpture in titanium, glass and limestone. The exterior volumes are as visually stimulating as the cathedral-like atrium and the organic forms of the galleries. Gehry talks about his design approach to the evolutionary process from his first sketches through to the museum’s completion.
