School Library JournalGr 7-10-Known as a sculptor and as the architect of many famous structures, Gehry has created unique buildings from materials as varied as chain-link fencing and titanium. This biography links the creative artist's professional and personal lives, pointing out great influences and shaping experiences. Lazo focuses on Gehry's biggest commissions (the Guggenheim, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, and the Experience Music Project) and on the awards he has received. She also includes a detailed time line, a list of selected buildings and their locations, a list of works in progress, sources of her research, and a detailed index. Overall, the book is well organized and includes full-color photos and reproductions of relevant and important sites. Great for reports, this title will also appeal to experimental artists and students interested in architecture.-Delia Carruthers, Sunset Ridge Middle School, West Jordan, UT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
