No building has been more anticipated than Frank Gehry's stunning new museum in Bilbao, an industrial city in the Basque country of northern Spain. Philip Johnson, the dean of American architects, has already declared it to be 'the greatest building of our time,' while Sverre Fehn, the winner of the 1999 Pritzker Architecture Prize (Gehry received the award in 1989), stated , 'This buiding is fantastic.' Gehry's use of non-traditional materials and his sensitivity to the environments for his buildings is legendary; his method of envisioning a building through semi-automatic drawings and handmade models is little known, but provides an immediate entry into his creative process. This book celebrates the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and details the design process that is an intrinsic part of Gehry's revolutionary approach to architecture. Art historian and artist Coosje van Bruggen, who has collaborated with Gehry on various architectural and art projects, documents the history of the Guggenheim Bilbao from conception through design and construction. With unique access to the architect and his studio, she has uncovered scores of fascinating drawings and working photographs, publishe here for the first time.
