Frank O. Gehry: Since 1997by Germano Celant
The only complete monograph on the past twelve years of the great architect’s career. Published in conjunction with the major exhibition curated by Germano Celant at the Milan Triennial, this volume brings together all the projects realized by Frank O. Gehry since his pivotal stylistic metamorphosis of 1997, embodied by the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, until today. Among the featured works: the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles (1989-2003), the DZ Bank Building in Berlin (1995-2001), the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago (1999-2004), the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. (1999-2005), the Experience Music Project in Seattle (1995-2000), the Art Gallery of Ontario (2000-2008), the Interactive Corporation headquarters in New York (2003-2007), the Beekman Street residential complex in New York (2003-2009), and two projects begun in 2005-06 that are still underway, the Atlantis Sentosa resort in Singapore and the Guggenheim Museum in Abu Dhabi. Opening with a critical essay by Germano Celant, the catalogue presents every one of the 1989 Pritzker Prize winner’s projects since 1997, many of them heretofore unpublished, in the form of sketches, study drawings, 3-D elaborations, models and photographs of finished buildings. It will be a must-have for architects, architectural enthusiasts, and anyone interested in modern design.
