Inside Wonderland: Guggenheim Bilbao Museum Part II

Inside Wonderland, a territory of Art and dream offered to us by the genius of  Frank Gehry.

After an attentive and fascinated stroll around the awesome building that the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum offers – and which has been described in our last feature – we ventured into its inside. In fact, it was with a feeling of reverence and excited anticipation that we stepped down the wide stairway leading to its entrance.

A Museum that is a Work of Art

Frank Gehry’s stunning Bilbao Guggenheim Museum is “a soaring exercise of the human imagination”.

“Technology, like Art, is a soaring exercise of the human imagination” stated Daniel Bell (b. 1919), U.S. sociologist and educator, in his book “Technology, Nature and Society”. Nothing could better suit Frank Gehry’s stunning building of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, justly elected the most remarkable structure from the twentieth-century.

“Touching Art” hit the road to go to Bilbao and see the Guggenheim Museum, so as to have a live experience of this awesome work of art and to be able to convey to our readers a more direct impression of all it has to offer. This is, therefore, a very particular view of this unique building, a first person report which deliberately does not look for foundation on formal sources, but rather depends on our very own reactions to this fantastic work of art.
