Sketches of Frank Gehry
Frank O. Gehry and Sydney Pollack are friends. Pollack: "Frank kept on ... trying to get me to do this ... I said, Frank, look, I know nothing about architecture ... about documentaries. He said, 'That's why you're perfect.'" Thanks to computer technology, Gehry's minimal, erratically penned, squiggly sketches are translated by a team of model makers, software wizards, and engineers into plans that evolve into grand monuments. This exploration of Gehry's basic philosophy, early influences, and somewhat mysterious process, provide a fresh perspective into how architecture, and this architect, works.
