Few new buildings have aroused such expectations in the run up to their opening as Frank Gehry's new Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, an industrial town in northern Spain. Over the years the Guggenheim has displayed its masterworks in many different venues and has long been an international presence with its various institutions (the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the Guggenheim SoHo and the German Guggenheim in Berlin). Now in the shape of Frank Gehry's museum in Bilbao a new star is shining in the Guggenheim cosmos. The building itself, enthusiastically greeted by the world's leading architects and critics, recognized for its significance and visionary quality, is the perfect complement - as a museum of the 21st century - to the mother institution in New York. Gehry's choice of unusual materials and the sensitivity with which he ties his buildings in to their surroundings are legendary. This publication celebrates the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and affords the reader an insight into the creative process which in itself is part of Gehry's revolutionary new concept of architecture. With over 200 illustrations in color and duplex this book gives a vivid impression of Frank Gehry's most magnificent building to date.
