Labeled by Vanity Fair as “the most important architect of our age”. His works are cited as being among the most integral works of contemporary architecture. Frank Gehry, is one of the world’s most famous, perhaps overly famous architects of today.
Gehry first drew notice when he used commonplace industrial materials in unexpected ways; he later gained international prominence when he juxtaposed traditional geometric architecture with dramatic expression, to create often-irregular forms. Using cutting-edge 3D computer technology, developed specifically for the aerospace industry, Gehry has been able to realize shapes and forms of inconceivable complexity.
In his monumental works, Frank Gehry projects his whimsical, uninhibited imagination to create form in powerful structures of lustrous titanium, glass, concrete, and red brick. They are bold statements that have brought alive cityscapes and created new destinations globally.
Some of his most touted projects are the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA, MARTa Herford Museum in Germany, and the Dancing House in Prague.
Now in his 80’s, Gehry continues to work his unique style creating work that is big enough to be relevant but at the same time making sure not to compromise his fierce vision. Gehry has ventured beyond architecture to work with artists such as Claes Oldenberg and Richard Serra, designed watches, home accessories and even a line of jewelry for Tiffany & Co.
