It is true that the architecture has a lot to do with the fame of the museum. Designed by North American architect Frank O. Gehry, the building is a magnificent example of the most groundbreaking architecture to have come out of the 20th century.

- “The matter of time”, by Richard Serra (The relationship between sculpture and the human body is explored through scale, equilibrium, weight, and tension.)
