South and southeast sides, Guggenheim Museum-- page 6 (of 7 pages)

Frank Gehry
1997

Please note that these photographs were taken on two different days. The colored reflections on some of the buildings indicate that the installation Quantum field-x3 by the Japanese artist HiroYamagata was activated. This installation consisted of large holographic panels on which laser beams were projected.
