Located on the Bay of Biscay, Bilbao is the fourth largest city in Spain, one of the country’s most important ports,
and a center for manufacturing, shipping, and commerce.
An architectural competition led to the selection of California-based architect Gehry,
known for his use of unorthodox materials and inventive forms, and his sensitivity to the urban environment.
Gehry’s proposal for the site on the Nervion River ultimately included features that embrace both the identity of the Guggenheim Museum
and its new home in the Basque Country.
Ground-breaking took place in 1993
Inauguration in 1997
