Discover the story behind a visionary architect. “Life is chaotic. Buildings should reflect it.” So says Frank O. Gehry, architect of one of the most acclaimed and influential buildings of the past century, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. Winner of more than one hundred awards for his work, Gehry has a remarkable gift for changing the ordinary into the amazing. His buildings surge with energy and movement, revealing forms never before seen in architecture. Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan, award winners in their own right for their acclaimed Chuck Close, Up Close, take us into Gehry’s world-from his early years in Canada as the son of Polish immigrants, to his earliest efforts at architecture, to the Guggenheim Bilbao and beyond. Strikingly designed and full of provocative sidebars as well as a glossary and a list of building locations, this is a book that anyone interested in buildings, or popular culture, or the future, will cherish.
