Design Monograph: Gehry
A design monograph on architect Frank Gehry.
A design monograph series on the most remarkable architects, designers, brands and design movements of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, each book contains a historical-critical essay discussing the life and work of the subject, followed by an illustrated appreciation of groundbreaking work.
Frank Gehry transformed contemporary architecture with his innovative use, and range, of materials and forms, from mass-produced items to titanium and 3D computer modelling. Remarkable, surprising, and revealing a sense of flow and movement, his buildings curve, bend and collapse in unexpected ways. From his most famous masterpiece, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, to his Dancing House in Prague and the twisting Luma Arles Tower, his experimental shapes inspire awe and wonder.
