Description - Frank Gehry by Jean-Louis Cohen

This catalogue - the first of eight planned volumes that will critically present the entire oeuvre of Toronto-born, Los Angeles-based architect Frank Gehry (born 1929) using his sketches as the primary graphic material - includes texts and high-quality images of individual works and preparatory drawings. The book explores the beginning of Gehry's conceptual thinking and his progression from paper architecture to poststructuralism.

Pritzker Award-winning architect Frank Gehry is the quintessential "star architect": he was the subject of a Sydney Pollack documentary, Sketches of Frank Gehry, and Vanity Fair ran a cover story labeling him "the most important architect of our age." His irreverent buildings, often incorporating swooping walls made of aluminum, titanium or stainless steel, are world-renowned attractions, and his iconic design for the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao made both Gehry and the Basque city world-famous.

This, the first catalogue raisonne of drawing was written by architecture scholar Jean-Louis Cohen in direct collaboration with Gehry.
