Wihin the next decades the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin (Germany), the Guggenheim Museum (Spain) and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi (Emirate of Abu Dhabi) were build.

 Each constituent museum unites distinguished architecture with great artworks, a tradition that has become a Guggenheim hallmark. Looking to the future, the Guggenheim Foundation continues to forge international partnerships as it works on developing new museums in the Middle East, Latin America, and Asia. Thanks to its celebrated collections, special exhibitions, conservation efforts, educational initiatives, and scholarship, the Guggenheim is internationally recognized as a pioneer and touchstone for all cultural institutions.
