Overview

Frank Gehry: The City and Music is the result of a unique collaboration between the architect and leading critic Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe. It focuses on two projects, Gehry's unrealised proposal for the rehabilitation of Berlin's Museum Island and his soon to be completed Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, while discussing other projects such as the Pavilion for the Performing Arts in Concord, California, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and the Experience Music Project in Seattle. Gehry's much debated relationship to Minimalist sculpture, use of new building materials and attitude to tradition, are discussed with regard to his belief in architecture as a democratic practice which is at once practical and expressive.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe challenges us with every sentence, every paragraph, and every page to see the world - and especially the work of artists and architects such as Frank Gehry - anew. Gilbert-Rolfe's text is essential reading.' Richard Koshalek, Director Emeritus, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles

'Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe powerfully demonstrates the significance of Frank Gehry's architecture. Frank Gehry: The City and Music positions Gehry's mature work as an exercise in liberation, an adventurous experiment with architectural materials, which nonetheless resonates with the client's programme.' Bruce Mau, Creative Director, Bruce Mau Design
