This book spans from Gehry's earliest projects to project underdevelopment

This book spans from Gehry's earliest projects to project underdevelopment. Projects range from structures to furniture, and even to art (sculpture like stuff). An aspect that I like most about this book is seeing Gehry develop his ideas and hone his craft.

Frank Owen Gehry, CC, FAIA (/ˈɡɛəri/; born Frank Owen Goldberg; February 28, 1929) is a Canadian-born American architect, residing in Los Angeles. A number of his buildings, including his private residence, have become world-renowned attractions. His works are cited as being among the most important works of contemporary architecture in the 2010 World Architecture Survey, which led Vanity Fair to label him as "the most important architect of our age".

His father changed the family’s name to Gehry when the family immigrated. Ephraim adopted the first name Frank in his 20s; since then he has signed his name Frank O. Gehry.

New Lower Price This book, the catalogue to the first large-scale retrospective of Frank Gehry's work in 15 years, examines the Los Angeles-based architect's unique vision and audacious accomplishments. Frank Gehry, Architect presents nearly 40 of Gehry's most significant works, from his earliest residential projects, including the 1977-78 transformation of his own Santa Monica residence--in which he used chain-link fencing, asphalt flooring and corrugated sheet metal to effectively build a house around an existing house--through his most recent public buildings worldwide. Among these, his best-known completed project is the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, an architectural marvel of limestone, glass and titanium that brought Gehry international renown. This book provides the career-long perspective with which to interpret Gehry's recent work, such as the Nationale-Nederlanden Building in Prague, the Experience Music Project in Seattle and the DG Bank Building in Berlin, as well as a host of major projects currently in progress, including the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the Ray and Maria Stata Center at MIT. Gehry's experiments with furniture design have been complementary to his architectural endeavors, and this book also looks at his celebrated cardboard furniture, bentwood furniture and playful lamps made from Colorcore.

I just want to begin this review by saying that this book is a need for any architect's library. The book Frank Gehry, Architect, provides a wealth of knowledge about the architect as well as the structures that he has created over time. Most pages in this book (and there are many) contain full color pictures, sketches, or descriptions about the structure and the architect. This book spans from Gehry's earliest projects to project underdevelopment. Projects range from structures to furniture, and even to art (sculpture like stuff). An aspect that I like most about this book is seeing Gehry develop his ideas and hone his craft. I should also add that this book also contains several models that were created for structures. I think this is essential because it allows beginning architects a chance to see effective model building techniques as well as different ways to convey a feeling which is essential for effective communication with a client. Overall, I would highly recommend this book for all architects and students.

Well done survey of Gehry's work by Gehry himself, as such, the text is highly informative and the images show his work in its best light. Gehry is without question one of the most influential architects working today, and though I would not necessarily call me a worshiper of his work, im more of a richard meier, santiago calatrava kinda guy, I do respect his awesome talent and his contributions to the field of architecture. If you have any interest at all in Gehry or architecture in general, then I highly recommend you added this to you library.

A wonderful exploration into the thought and work process of creative artist and his team. Frank Gehry is to architecture what Dale Chihuly is to glass.
