    Good afternoon.
    In this context:
    El Guggenheim de Bilbao se encuentra en una obra arquitectónica modernista, considera en sí una pieza de arte. Es uno de los cinco museos de la Fundación Solomon R. Guggenheim y fue inaugurado el 18 de octubre de 1997 por el Rey Juan Carlos I de España. Su inusual estructura ofrece superficies curvilíneas y retorcidas cubiertas de piedra caliza, cortinas de cristal y planchas de titanio. El Teatro del Liceo es el más antiguo y prestigioso que se mantiene aún activo, sobre todo para la presentación de óperas. Su capacidad es de unas tres mil personas.
    I have this:
    The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is found in a contemporary architecture work, consider as a work of art. It is one of the five museums belonging to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and it was opened on October 18, 1997 by the King Juan Carlos I of Spain. Its unusual structure offers curving lines and convoluted surfaces of limestone, glass curtain walls and metallic titanium skin. The Gran Teatre del Liceu is the oldest and most prestigious that is still active, especially for opera performances. It has a capacity of almost three thousand people.
    I'm not sure about repeating "work"

    Hi,

    I would say "modernist work of architecture". There is also a grammatical problem with the sentence, in both English and Spanish. The next word must be "considerada", no? And in that case, in English it would be "considered".

    is found in a modernistic building...
    considered a work of art in itself.
    by King Juan Carlos (we don't say 'the'.)
    most prestigious that is still in use. (no se puede decir 'active' de edificios).

    Espero que esto te ayude.

    Yo simplemente diría...
    The Bilbao Guggenheim Museum is located within a modernist building...

    ("modernist" en caso de que el edificio sea un ejemplo del Modernism).

    Saludos,
    LN
