Frank Gehry designed the new museum to incorporate the designs of pre-existing architecture that surrounded it. In the case of this bridge this meant adding a false section that ‘bridged’ the design of the bridge with that of the museum.The bridge in Bilbao that leads over to the Guggenheim Modern Art Museum, designed by Frank Gehry.Testing night photography in Bruges, Belgium. This was a DSLR shot of a canal with a small bridge – none of the point ‘n shoot shots at night even come close.
