About the book

Indisputable icon of the city of Bilbao, the Guggenheim Museum was designed by the avant-garde North American architect Frank O. Gehry, who combined art and functionalism in order to create a unique ensemble of sculptural design that has ended up converting into an international reference.

Perfectly blending in with the urban surroundings, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao has transcended its function as an art centre, decisively contributing to recuperate the vitality of the zone in which it is situated and consolidating itself as the most recognisable symbol of the economic, social and cultural transformation of the city.

This book dedicated to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao shows in detail the origins and the structure of a building that changed the concept of modern architecture. By means of photographs, drawings and 3D illustrations, the reader will find out about the original ideas and solutions introduced by Gehry, who drew on the latest technology to conjure up the complex volumes and sinuous, titanium surfaces that characterise the building, inspired by the maritime and industrial character of Bilbao.
