Architectural choreography, or the infinite transformation of the cliché, the most significant works by Frank O. Gehry.
The monograph on Frank O. Gehry systematically analyzes the work of the young American master. Through a sort of improvisation, Gehry’s surprising, apparently unruly architectural works display great creative freedom, permitting him to work without any preconceived notions, with extraordinary mental openness. For Gehry architecture is a tool to be investigated, a way of knowing reality, and this is why his buildings take the form of open works in which it is always possible to intervene and to explore further. The fascinating career of the American architect is narrated in this volume that analyzes all the most significant works, from the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles to the Loyola Law School, the California Aerospace Museum and Theater to the Chiat Day Mojo Building in Venice CA. The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, designed by O. Gehry, is a magnificent example of the most groundbreaking architecture to have come out of the 20th century.
