This is the bridge in Bilbao that leads over to the city’s famous Guggenheim Modern Art Museum.
Frank Gehry designed the Guggenheim to incorporate the designs of pre-existing architecture that surrounded the new museum.In the case of this bridge this meant adding a false section that ‘bridged’ the design of the bridge with that of the museum. It looks good when crossing the bridge but I’m not so sure about this angle.These are the stairs that we trudged up in order to cross the bridge to see the Guggenheim at night.
The next day we went back because we wanted to see the inside the museum.
But the stairs looked even more intimidating in the daytime.
Until we saw this small sign, that we had missed the night before, indicating an elevator!
Underneath the bridge is intriguing too!
