Engineering Connections Guggenheim Bilbao

Engineering Connections Guggenheim Bilbao

Richard Hammond visits a building described as the ‘greatest of our time’ – the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, Spain – to find out which Engineering Connections made this iconic building possible. He finds out how a visionary architect transformed a decaying city into a vibrant tourist hub with his futuristic building. But it would not have been possible without a volcano, an egg, Sir Walter Raleigh, a surveyor’s trundle wheel and a Cold War Russian submarine.
