Frank Gehry’s busy

063014

And so is his architecture, most of which gives me a headache.

This one was no exception.

I try to respond to comments right away, but this week I’m away and it may take me a few days to get back to you. Please do comment, though….

  1. I got to see his museum in Seattle, the Experience Music Project. Mind. Blown. It’s very organic and flowing.

    It is ‘dense’ to say the least. But as a surreal photo it certainly flies !

  3. I find it difficult to evaluate this architecture, which may sound strange coming from someone who likes to home in on the detail in modern architecture. It is a little suggestive of the Guggenheim in Bilbao but I may be barking up entirely the wrong tree.

    • Actually, Andy, you are barking up exactly the right tree: Frank Gehry designed both of these buildings. His stuff is all suggestive of all his other stuff, and not necessarily in a good way (in my opinion). To me, it is suggestive of wadded up aluminum foil.

      I was on a tour in Boston a few years ago and we went by a building Gehry designed on the campus of MIT – it’s famous for two things. One is that it’s a Gehry building. And the other thing is that it has (of course) those big sloping panels on it. In this particular building, those panels slope down and dump rain water on the main entrance of the building, which is the sort of thing a student in freshman design would be ridiculed for. It was very interesting that the tour guide was making comments about the bad design.
