About the book

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 published by Dosde 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.

    Beautifully published

    The Visual Guides are very complete books and are beautifully published. I believe that one can't ask for more and that they are the best that have been produced in Spain in their field. The only negative remark I can make is that the pace of new releases is rather slow.

    Very complete and educational

    They seem to be, for those who are lovers of art and architecture, particularly the layman, the best books that I know of to be informed in a very visual and simple way, with extraordinary infographics of famous buildings. Maybe the only criticism that I could make is that, at times, there could be less pictures with an amplification of the content of the book with regards to the historical context of the construction of the buildings, architect's biography, etc. I understand that the book needs to be easy to read, educational and visual and not overload the reader with “academic” text and I believe it is managed very well but the text could be padded out a little bit more.
