Frank Gehry: The Creation of an Architect

ID : 1484   
« back to classes page
This study group is based on a book by Paul Goldberger, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and former architectural critic for The New York Times, and will explore the life and career of Frank Gehry. Gehry is considered the most famous living architect. We'll examine how Gehry combined art and technology to create his unique persona and his extraordinary style of architecture. The Frank Gehry story shows how the circumstances in our lives and our ambitions can set the stage for the life we live. With only one Frank Gehry building in Chicago, the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, the study group will view and discuss his work through the use of the very readable book, Building Art: The Life and Work of Frank Gehry by Paul Goldberger (Knopf, 2015.) We will also ask members to view a documentary about Gehry in advance and then discuss it in class.
