Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
Avenida Abandoibarra, 2
* The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a modern and contemporary art museum designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, built by Ferrovial and located in Bilbao, Basque Country, Spain. It is built alongside the Nervion River, which runs through the city of Bilbao to the Atlantic Coast. The Guggenheim is one of several museums of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. The museum features both permanent and visiting exhibits featuring works of both Spanish and international artists.
The curves on the building have been designed to appear random. The architect has been quoted saying that “the randomness of the curves are designed to catch the light”. Designed by Canadian/American architect Frank Gehry and opened to the public in 1997, was immediately vaulted to prominence as one of the world’s most spectacular buildings in the style of Deconstructivism. Architect Philip Johnson called it “the greatest building of our time”
