Acerca de


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.
