Digital Transformation

What makes architecture more than just building? Architecture Effects at Guggenheim Bilbao articulates the cultural impact of its Frank Gehry-designed building, which opened in 1997. Establishing links between contemporary buildings, art and storytelling, the show explores the state of architecture in the digital age, drawing on the museum’s pioneering use of technology.

Comprising three curated sections: Airlock, Garden, and Bubble – the latter a digital app – the interdisciplinary exhibition expands on architectural concerns, taking them beyond the built, physical environment and applying them to a variety of platforms. Reflecting on an age of hyper-connectivity and disorientation, Guggenheim Bilbao demonstrates the unprecedented transformations of technology and culture in the 21st century.

The show runs until 29 April. Find out more here.
