JG Ballard on the Bilbao Guggenheim

Ballard, of ‘Crash’ and other wonderful novels and short stories, writes a sharp piece about Frank Gehry’s questionably iconic building. “I wonder if the Bilbao Guggenheim is a work of architecture at all? Perhaps it belongs to the category of exhibition and fairground displays, of giant inflatables and bouncy castles.” – J G Ballard.
