Based on a book by Paul Goldberger, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and former architectural critic for the New York Times, the class will explore the life and career of Frank Gehry. Gehry is considered the most famous living architect. The class will explore how Gehry combined art and technology to create his unique persona and his extraordinary style of architecture. With only one Frank Gehry building in Chicago, the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, the class will view and discuss his work through the use of the very readable book, Building Art: The Life and Work of Frank Gehry (Knopf, 2015.) A documentary about Gehry will also be shown. Canvas will be used for supplementary optional information, but is not required. The Frank Gehry story shows how the circumstances in our lives and our ambitions can set the stage for the life we live. No class on 11/28/19.
