  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
Bilbao has undergone an amazing rejuvenation in the past few years, becoming an international center of art and culture, and its tourist industry is booming. A new airport terminal and improved public transport have helped make the city and surrounding area a more appealing and convenient destination for travelers. 'El Goog', as the Basques call Frank Gehry's titanium wonder, was meant to attract attention, and it has succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams. But there's more to Bilbao than the Guggenheim Museum, and there's much, much more to the Basques, Europe's oldest people. Cadogan takes you through their stunning habitat of velvet green mountains, immaculate villages, vineyards, and ancient holy places. This first ever guide to the entire Basque country (including both the Spanish and French sides of the border), gives you the lowdown on the Basques' history, culture, ancient language, festivals, and explores the dramatic vistas of the Pyrenees. With Cadogan's expert guidance, visit vibrant Vittoria and live it up in the glittering resort of Biarritz.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
No building was more anticipated than Frank Gehry's stunning new museum in Bilbao, an industrial city in the Basque Country of northern Spain. Philip Johnson, the dean of American architects, declared it "the greatest building of our time," while Sverre Fehn, winner of the 1997 Pritzker Architecture Prize, called the building "fantastic." Gehry's use of nontraditional materials and his sensitivity to the environments of his buildings is legendary; his method of envisioning a building through semiautomatic drawings and handmade models is little known, but provides an immediate entry into his creative process. This book celebrates the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and details its design process, bringing to life one of Gehry's greatest achievements. Coosje van Bruggen, who has collaborated with Gehry on various architectural and art projects, documents the history of the Guggenheim Bilbao from conception through design and construction. With unique access to the architect and his studio, she uncovers scores of fascinating drawings and working photographs, published here for the first time.
