Interior of Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain

This is another sketch I did in 2005 at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain designed by Frank Gehry. To see my previous sketch click here. The comment written above occurred when I realized that (to me) the interior was a conversation between the horizontal and the sinuous. I thought to myself (and on paper), “Only the horizontal surfaces are level!…everything else is not, they’re curved!” The lines, the materials, rhythm, opacity, transparency…the interior is replete with these dialectics in architecture that I delight in.
