Designed by the internationally renowned North American architect Frank O. Gehry, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao was devised to be an avant-garde work and convert into the icon of the city in which it is found. It is a ground-breaking building in the history of contemporary architecture, which combines sculptural and functional criteria in order to convert into a work of art in its own right.
As his source of inspiration, Gehry paid attention to the urban context and the city of Bilbao's history when he created the sinuous forms of the Guggenheim Museum, which evokes boats, fish and sails which link it with the estuary that flows alongside the building.
This book analyses the complete history of the evolution of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Likewise, by means of photographs, drawings and 3D illustrations, it shows in great detail the techniques and ideas that Gehry introduced into each one of the spaces of this monumental work, a symbol of Bilbao's urban transformation and one of the most visited museums in Spain.
