Star-architect Frank O. Gehry, who is known for buildings like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, created this large scale sculpture for the Summer Olympics 1992 in Barcelona. Like many other Gehry buildings it is made of stainless steel and reflects the sunlight. The fish is 56 meters long and 35 m high and sits right in front of the Hotel Arts at the Olympic Port.
