The museum is a modern and contemporary art, it is built along side the Nervion River which runs through the city of Bilbao. The building has been hailed as a 'signal moment in the architectural culture', because it represents 'one of those rare moments when critic, academics, and the general public were all completely united about something.

The building shape is chaotically designed with an abstract look and materials used. surface structure were made out of titanium. The hybrid area of the building is the atrium, which designed to look as it is in-between outdoor and indoor, the wall made out of class with steel structure mixing with limelight stone and bricks. The material confront in contrast.
South of the museum facing the city, which designed to have the same dialog with the city, in the other hand, the North which facing the river, have the fluid shapes with titanium sheet  emphasis of  movement of the river.

Inside are rooms that do not resemble each other, with square sand curves, uses different materials within the shape.

The museum itself becomes one of its sculpture.
