Frank Gehry, Architect (Guggenheim Museum Publications)
Frank Gehry, Architect (Guggenheim Museum
Since the 1997 completion of what many consider his greatest achievement—the stunning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain—Frank O. Gehry has soared to the forefront of contemporary American architecture. Long recognized by his peers for his innovative designs, Gehry now enjoys a new level of prominence in the popular imagination. This book, the catalogue of the first large-scale retrospective of Gehry’s work in 15 years, examines the architect’s unique vision and provides the historical perspective with which to interpret his audacious accomplishments. Essays by noted museum curators and architectural historians explore his iconoclastic spirit and trace his melding of unconventional materials and forms. Photographs, drawings, plans, and scale models communicate the breadth and complexity of Gehry’s work and show how, in his view of architecture as sculptural space, Gehry has opened up a world of new possibilities for architecture.

Building Art: The Life and Work of Frank Gehry
Building Art: The Life and Work of Frank
From Pulitzer Prize–winning architectural critic Paul Goldberger: an engaging, nuanced exploration of the life and work of Frank Gehry, undoubtedly the most famous architect of our time. This first full-fledged critical biography presents and evaluates the work of a man who has almost single-handedly transformed contemporary architecture in his innovative use of materials, design, and form, and who is among the very few architects in history to be both respected by critics as a creative, cutting-edge force and embraced by the general public as a popular figure. Building Art shows the full range of Gehry’s work, from early houses constructed of plywood and chain-link fencing to lamps made in the shape of fish to the triumphant success of such late projects as the spectacular art museum of glass in Paris. It tells the story behind Gehry’s own house, which upset his neighbors and excited the world with its mix of the traditional and the extraordinary, and recounts how Gehry came to design the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, his remarkable structure of swirling titanium that changed a declining city into a destination spot. Building Art also explains Gehry’s sixteen-year quest to complete Walt Disney Concert Hall, the beautiful, acoustically brilliant home of the Los Ange...

Featuring fifty of Frank Gehry’s most important projects, this lavish monograph presents the full range of the architect’s work from the past six decades. Arranged chronologically, this book follows the arc of Gehry’s career, from his early residential projects through the public and cultural facilities his studio is currently focused on. The book explores the evolution of Gehry’s work, and how he has ceaselessly embraced formal, technological and constructional innovations, while his practice has never wavered from his vision. It examines his work in the context of the urban environment, showing how Gehry continually strives to challenge the idea of the city, creating urban buildings that respond to their surroundings without trivializing them. The buildings profiled here―including the Vitra International Furniture Manufacturing Facility and Design Museum in Switzerland, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the 8 Spruce Street Skyscraper (Beekman Tower) in New York, and the Fondation Louis Vuitton―are represented in dazzling color photographs as well as preparatory drawings, plans, and models. From his early years working within the L.A. Art Scene, to his Pritzker-winning recognition, to his pioneering research into the application of computer-aided-design in all...

Frank Gehry: The Houses
Frank Gehry: The
One of the great architects of our time, Frank Gehry has revolutionized the use of materials in design and redefined how architects use computers as a design tool to advance form-making as we know it. He has achieved worldwide fame for such large-scale public projects as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California, but it was in private houses that Gehry first explored and interrogated the principles of modern architecture. In these houses—most notably his own, in Santa Monica, California—Gehry distorted, expanded, and collapsed the modernist box, exploring everyday materials (corrugated metal, unfinished plywood, and chain link), experimenting with color, and challenging accepted notions about geometry and structure. In houses such as the Schnabel House in Brentwood, California, and the Winton Guest House in Wayzata, Minnesota, he experimented with collage and assemblage. More recently, Gehry’s work has taken on sculptural forms, aided by new structural and geometric potentials of digital design, as in the near-legendary Lewis House in Lyndhurst, Ohio. Color photographs, sketches, and plans create an illuminating visual record of some of the most groundbreaking, seminal projects of Gehry’s oeuvre.
