As his first building in Britain, Frank Gehry encompasses his style of the Bilbao Guggenheim into a smaller scale. The judges remarked on how much detail had been packed into such a small building. Clever design and build quality were much in evidence as was an overall feeling of calm, enjoyment, contemplation and inspiration.
