The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a museum of modern and contemporary art, designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, located in Bilbao, Basque Country, Spain.
One of the most admired works of contemporary architecture, the building has been hailed as a "signal moment in the architectural culture".
The curves on the building were to appear random. The architect said that "the randomness of the curves are designed to catch the light". When it was opened to the public in 1997, it was immediately hailed as one of the world's most spectacular buildings in the style of Deconstructivism, although Gehry does not associate himself with that architectural movement.
