The two-story structure has 11 galleries of different sizes a voluminous 350-seat auditorium on the lower-ground floor and multilevel roof terraces for events and art installations.Gehry had to build within the square footage and two-story volume of a bowling alley that previously stood on the site; anything higher had to be glass.The resulting glass building takes the form of a sailboat's sails inflated by the wind. These glass sails envelop the "iceberg", a series of shapes with white, flowery terraces.
