Virtuous Nineties

Interior/exterior: Frank O. Gehry in Bilbao

Project by Frank O. Gehry

Breaking with the usual project hierarchy, Gehry works by overlaps and subtractions, giving rise to a surprising complementary relationship between the enclosure and the internal volumes. Far from the simple stereometry of the modern, the Californian architect draws in visitors through elaborate geometric forms in which the artworks freely interact with light and space.
