The Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao (Frank O. Gehry)
DVD1999 33 Minutes
The architect explains the ideas behind the beautiful modern building.
Frank Gehry's extraordinary building in Northern Spain resembles a gigantic abstract sculpture in titanium, glass and limestone. The luminous volumes of the exterior are as visually stimulating as the cathedral-like atrium and the organic forms of the galleries. Gehry talks about his design approach ad the evolutionary process from his first sketches through advanced computer techniques to the Museum's completion. UK only.
