Frank Owen Gehry was born on February 28, 1929 in Toronto
If I had to choose my favorite architect, I would choose Frank Gehry as my main option. His works are brilliant and magnificent. Am I the only one? I don’t think so. Vanity Fair labeled him as “the most important architect of our age”.
Gehry’s best-known works include the titanium-covered Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain; MIT Ray and Maria Stata Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles; Experience Music Project in Seattle; Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis; Dancing House in Prague; the Vitra Design Museum and MARTa Museum in Germany; the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto; the Cinémathèque française in Paris; and 8 Spruce Street in New York City. But it was his private residence in Santa Monica, California, which jump-started his career, lifting it from the status of “paper architecture”—a phenomenon that many famous architects have experienced in their formative decades through experimentation almost exclusively on paper before receiving their first major commission in later years. Gehry is also the designer of the future Dwight D. Eisenhower Memoria. (From Wikipedia)
Have a great day, dear Yareah friends. I don’t know why but I woke up fine today. I presume it will be a great day.
