Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves [Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao – a fine example of fashion in architecture]

The moment I read the word ‘Curves’ in Weekly Photo Challenge on The daily post, the image of Guggenheim Museum came to my mind.

Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao is one of the most renowned project by architect Frank O’Gehry and is one of those buildings that you would either love or hate.

Inspired by the shapes and textures of a fish, the form is conceptualised as an organic iconic work of art in itself. Use of a new computer advancement at the time, CATIA (Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Application) and Titanium as a main building material, made it possible to build this extra-ordinary form that is not governed by any geometric law.

One has to visit Bilbao to experience the form and the play of light it creates, both externally and internally, during different time of the day.

      • I need to go back there. I was just there for 3 days, 2 years ago during the Basque Festival (which was amazing!) Didn’t get to interact too much with people on an individual basis, but the food was incredible. Great city from what I saw of it.
