Frank Gehry creates architecture, such as the Guggenheim Museum, that resemble sculptures.
In many respects, Frank Gehry’s now-famous design of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, looks like a giant, stainless steel sculpture. And Antonio Gaudi’s undulating building designs–especially his homes like La Perdrera and Casa Battlo, also seem like gigantic sculptures. (The roof of Casa Battlo roof features a figurative representation about St. George and the Dragon.)
And at the same, time, when it comes to larger sculptures, such as Frank Stella’s massive bronze works, viewers can actually walk in and feel enclosed by the massive metal form. The same is also true of the Washington Monument which is both a sculpture and a shelter.
