From the Publisher
For over forty years, postmodern architect Frank Gehry has changed skylines with his dramatic forms. Among several other awards, his enchanting body of work earned him the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize-the "Nobel Prize of architecture." Experience for yourself Gehry's captivating deconstructive designs in a new interactive book, Frank Gehry in Pop-Up. This beautiful pop-up book illustrates Frank Gehry's greatest works of architecture and their natural environments, demonstrating his gift for radically redefining structure and space. Discover the inspirations behind Gehry's light and lively designs in a three-dimensional way, and learn how he combines building elements with an innovative approach. Featured within are his most iconic works, including the titanium-clad Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and the pioneering, pulled-apart structure of Gehry's Venice Beach House. Get to know the man behind the buildings with a brief yet in-depth look into Gehry's personal history and lifeworks. Compare and contrast the many different sides of Gehry, from the whimsical laid-back Californian to the closet elitist-and sometimes obsessive perfectionist.
