Architecture Effects




Exhibitions Bilbao, Spain December 5, 2018 - April 29, 2019

What makes architecture more than just building? This riddle is as old as architecture itself. While the entire history of the discipline is dedicated to debating the answer, there is one common refrain: architecture effects. This happened with the opening of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in 1997. The transformation of the city by global visitors, as well as the redefined role of the museum as an icon of cultural and social change, steered what came to be known as the “Bilbao Effect.” Pioneering in its use of digital technology for design, construction, and image circulation, Frank Gehry’s building set a new standard for the effects of architecture with the very tools that would soon transform life itself. Architecture Effects is an exhibition of contemporary architecture, art, and storytelling that responds to the everyday magic we have come to expect two decades later.
