• Vitra Design Museum

    Weil Am Rhein, Germany


    Gehry’s design for the exterior of this 8,000 sq ft (740 sqm) museum, his first building in Europe, brings together a series of white curves and abstract shapes in a composition of supreme energy, and suggests a continuous changing swirl of white forms on the exterior. As a totality it resolves itself into an entwined, coherent display.

  • Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

    Bilbao, Spain


    Gehry’s 258,000 sq ft (24,000 sqm) museum has revolutionised the way public buildings are designed and built.

  • Der Neue Zollhof

    Dusseldorf, Germany


    Der Neue Zollhof’s 301,000 sq ft (28,000 sqm) of office space became a major part of Dusseldorf’s regeneration of its River Rhine harbour as an attractive space to work, relax and play. A diverse mix of geometry, massing and exterior materials – the three separate concrete towers each have different finishes, metal, plaster and brick – give the buildings a unique character. To unify the project Gehry employed identical windows staggered throughout the entire complex in a mesmerising wave pattern.

    With its lyrical and sculptural curves and folds that mimic a symphony in full flow, the 199,900 sq ft (18,580 sqm) concert hall has become a new civic symbol for Los Angeles and a benchmark for world-class concert halls. From the outset, Gehry’s primary intention was to form a close connection between musicians and audience and despite the scale of the building, both its design and its superb acoustics create an extraordinarily intimate atmosphere.
