Guggenheim Museum Bilbao Commentary

Guggenheim Museum Bilbao Commentary

The new Guggenheim Museum Bilbao by Frank Gehry was probably the most often mentioned new building of 1998 and 1999 in architecture circles. The composition continues a curvaceous, free-form sculptural style that has become a Gehry signature. The abstract, free-form components of this style were present in the early Gehry House, and a similarly sleek curvaceous cladding was displayed in the sculptural fish of the Fishdance Restaurant.
— KMM

Associated with the Guggenheim Museum, New York, New York, building by Frank Lloyd Wright.
