Guggenheim Construction Site in Bilbao – 1997
In 1997-98 I was living in the Basque Country and I had the opportunity to see and take photos of the construction site of the Guggenheim in its advanced stage.
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a museum of modern and contemporary art, architecture by Arch. Frank O. Gehry. The building is made of stone, glass and titanium panels. It is located along the Nervión River in the old industrial heart of Bilbao.
The original design impacted and influenced the urban pattern of the city and, more in general, the contemporary architectural movement.
