Bubbles in the mist, Guggenheim Museum architecture detail, Bilbao, Euskadi, Spain

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a museum of modern and contemporary art, designed by the architect Frank Gehry, built along the Nervion River, by Ferrovial. The Guggenheim is one of several museums belonging to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. One of the most admired works of contemporary architecture, made in glass, titanium and limestone, the building has been hailed as a "signal moment in the architectural culture", because it represents "one of those rare moments when critics, academics, and the general public were all completely united about something." The museum was the building most frequently named as one of the most important works completed since 1980 in the 2010 World Architecture Survey among architecture experts.
