Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 155407276X, Hardcover)

A stunning 600-page survey of an architectural genius' building designs.

Frank 0. Gehry is one of the world's most innovative and acclaimed architects, with an active career spanning nearly four decades. His heart-stopping designs can be seen across the globe, and while the buildings' functions vary, all share Gehry's signature elements: ingenious manipulations of light, shadow and geometry.

This exciting retrospective of Gehry's work is the first published in more than a decade and features hundreds of superb full-color photographs illustrating a selection of of the architect's most important designs. Five introductory essays detail his inventive use of cutting-edge technology and diverse materials, and his mastery of light, form and sculpture. Informative chapters come together with striking photographs to reveal the precision and poise of Gehry's buildings.

The selected projects range from the architect's tentative start in Los Angeles to his most famous commissions worldwide. They include:

Edgemar Project (Santa Monica) American Center (Paris) Vila Olimpica (Barcelona) Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles) Goldstein Housing (Frankfurt) Guggenheim Museum (Bilbao) Pa riser Platz 3 (Berlin) Richard B. Bard Fisher Center (Bard College, New York State) Maggie's Centre (Dundee, Scotland) Millennium Park's Pritzker Pavillion (Chicago).

There are also photographs of Gehry's furniture designs plus discussions of his preferred materials and specific features: windows, metal, wood and natural light. Stimulating text and images by premier architectural photographers provide exclusive insight into one of the most creative minds in architecture.
