Arranged chronologically, this book follows the arc of Gehry's later career, during which he has focused mainly on public and cultural facilities. The book explores how Gehry has overcome technological setbacks and aesthetic backlash, never wavering from his vision. It examines his work in the context of the urban environment, showing how Gehry continually strives to make cities "less boring" and to create urban buildings that echo their surroundings. 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 colour photographs as well as preparatory drawing, plans and models. From his early years working within the L.A. Art Scene, to his Pritzker-winning stardom, to his current fascination with the application of computer-aided-design in such areas as cancer research, Frank Gehry, now in his ninth decade, continues to surprise and inspire the public. This informative, fascinating volume is a must-have for his ardent fans and anyone interested in architecture.
