The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is the first step in a planned redevelopment of the former trade and warehouse district in Bilbao, Spain. Directly accessible from the historic and business districts of the city, the museum is at the center of a cultural triangle formed by the Museo de Bellas Artes, the University, and the old Town Hall. The overall program for the museum involves approximately 12,000 m² of exhibition space, a 300-seat auditorium, a restaurant, a cafe, shops, offices and parking. The museum design is geometrically complex, consisting of a series of interconnected building masses.
