BIOGRAPHY

"Every building is by its very nature a sculpture. You can't help it. Sculpture is a three-dimensional object and so is a building.“ Frank O. Gehry “I approach each building as a sculptural object, a spatial container, a space with light and air, a response to context and appropriateness of feeling and spirit. To this container, this sculpture, the user begins his baggage, his program, and interacts with it to accommodate his needs. If he can’t do that, I’ve failed.” Frank O. Gehry

In spite of changes in Gehry’s design over the years, his approach to a building as a sculpture retains.

DESIGN STYLE

Most recently. the works retain a deconstructed aesthetic that fits well with the increasingly disjointed culture to which they belong. Gehry has combined sensuous curving forms with complex deconstructive massing.Gehry’s architecture has undergone a marked evolution from the plywood and corrugated-metal vernacular of his early works to the distorted but pristine concrete of his later works. However. achieving significant new results. DESIGN STYLE .
