Tenth Anniversary of the Guggenheim Museum
October 19th, 2007
Project development: 2 months
To mark the Guggenheim Museum’s tenth anniversary and the inauguration of the new identity given to La Salve bridge, through the work “Arcos Rojos” by French artist Daniel Buren, the Museum wished to offer the general public a pyrotechnical music show.
Frank Gehry used titanium for the first time in the history of contemporary architecture in the design of the Museum.
To celebrate its tenth anniversary, the Museum acquired a masterpiece by Daniel Buren.
On this occasion, Les Petits Français designed a pyrotechnical show based upon an original soundtrack linking the chromatic characteristics of both works.
The seven-minute long “fire” relies on the moving city beat as it straddles the River Nervión.
Among the pyrotechnical products used a pure white (titanium), which launches the show, and warm red shades, ending the show with a nod to the new work inaugurated on that day.
