Frank Gehry, architect by Frank O Gehry( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1997 completion of what many consider his greatest achievement - the stunning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain - Frank O. Gehry has soared to the forefront of contemporary American architecture. Long recognized by his peers for his innovative designs, Gehry now enjoys a new level of prominence in the popular imagination. This book, the catalogue of the first large-scale retrospective of Gehry's work in 15 years, examines the architect's unique vision and provides the historical perspective with which to interpret the audacious accomplishments." "Essays by noted museum curators and architectural historians explore his iconoclastic spirit and trace his melding of unconventional materials and forms. Photographs, drawings, plans, and scale models communicate the breadth and complexity of Gehry's work and show how, in his view of architecture as sculptural space, Gehry has opened up a world of new possibilities for architecture."--Jacket

Symphony : Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall by Frank O Gehry( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Symphony, which includes an introduction by Gehry, traces the history of the Concert Hall from its inception through completion in four illuminating essays and stunning photographs by acclaimed architectural photographer Grant Mudford. Authors Richard Koshalek and Dana Hutt describe the dramatic journey beginning with an unprecedented gift of $50 million in 1988 from the late Lillian Disney, widow of Walt Disney, for a new home for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, to final construction of the building. Carol McMichael Reese explores the planning of the Concert Hall in relation to a century of efforts to make Downtown Los Angeles the economic and cultural hub of the city. Architecture critic and writer Michael Webb eloquently describes the artistry and complex engineering of this unique structure. And Esa-Pekka Salonen, music director for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, recounts his first impressions of Gehry and the architectural models for the new building in an essay that also defines what makes a great orchestra and a world-class concert hall." "Attracting visitors from around the world, Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the most important and innovative buildings of recent years. Symphony brings its story to all those interested in modern architecture and the vitality of classical music."--Jacket

Frank Gehry by Frank O Gehry( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arranged chronologically, this book follows the arc of Gehry's later career, during which he has focused mainly on public and cultural facilities. The book explores how Gehry has overcome technological setbacks and aesthetic backlash, never wavering from his vision. It examines his work in the context of the urban environment, showing how Gehry continually strives to make cities "less boring" and to create urban buildings that echo their surroundings. The buildings profiled here - including the Vitra International Furniture Manufacturing Facility and Design Museum in Switzerland, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the 8 Spruce Street Skyscraper (Beekman Tower) in New York, and the Fondation Louis Vuitton - are represented in dazzling colour photographs as well as preparatory drawing, plans and models. From his early years working within the L.A. Art Scene, to his Pritzker-winning stardom, to his current fascination with the application of computer-aided-design in such areas as cancer research, Frank Gehry, now in his ninth decade, continues to surprise and inspire the public. This informative, fascinating volume is a must-have for his ardent fans and anyone interested in architecture."--Publisher's description

Frank Gehry : the city and music by Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank Gehry : the houses by Mildred S Friedman( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the great architects of our time, Frank Gehry has revolutionized the use of materials in design and redefined how architects use computers as a design tool to advance form-making as we know it. He has achieved worldwide fame for such large-scale public projects as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California, but it was in private houses that Gehry first explored and interrogated the principles of modern architecture. In these houses - most notably his own, in Santa Monica, California - Gehry distorted, expanded, and collapsed the modernist box, exploring everyday materials (corrugated metal, unfinished plywood, and chain link), experimenting with color, and challenging accepted notions about geometry and structure. In houses such as the Schnabel House in Brentwood, California, and the Winton Guest House in Wayzata, Minnesota, he experimented with collage and assemblage. More recently, Gehry's work has taken on sculptural forms, aided by new structural and geometric potentials of digital design, as in the near-legendary Lewis House in Lyndhurst, Ohio. Color photographs, sketches, and plans create an illuminating visual record of some of the most groundbreaking, seminal projects of Gehry's oeuvre."--Jacket
Building Stata : the design and construction of Frank O. Gehry's Stata Center at MIT by Nancy Joyce( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The architectural drawings and photographs - 300 of them in color - in Building Stata document the making of the Stata Center from concept to concrete reality. The photographs by Richard Sobol portray a work in progress, evoking the beauty of its architectural form and capturing the telling detail - the building's sculptured shape against a clear blue sky, or construction workers perched on a massive curve of metal."--Jacket
Frank Gehry : architecture as art( Visual )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part in-depth analysis, part whirlwind tour, this program captures the essence of Frank Gehry and his iconoclastic creations through the celebrated architect's own words; the insights of Cesar Pelli, Richard Serra, Hiro Yamagata, and Rafael Moneo; and a broad sampling of Gehry's many structures, which speak for themselves. The Davis studio and residence, Loyola Law School, the Edgemar Development, the Chiat/Day Building, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, and the DG Bank Building are featured, among many others. Gehry's love of motion, aesthetic exuberance, and dynamic language of design are considered, along with the seven constants that characterize his works

California Aerospace Museum : Frank Gehry by James Steele( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Characterized by their collage-like complexity, their shifts in geometry and frequent use of utilitarian materials, Frank Gehry's buildings blur the fine line that separates art and architecture. The California Aerospace Museum in Los Angeles exemplifies Gehry's irreverent style
Architecture and its photography by Julius Shulman( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American photographer Julius Shulman's images of Californian architecture have burned themselves into the retina of the 20th century. A book on modern architecture without Shulman is inconceivable. Some of his architectural photographs, like the iconic shots of Frank Lloyd Wright's or Pierre Koenig's remarkable structures, have been published countless times. The brilliance of buildings like those by Charles Eames, as well as those of his close Friend, Richard Neutra, was first brought to light by Shulman's photography. The clarity of his work demanded that architectural photography had to be considered as an independent art form. Each Schulman image unites perception and understanding for the buildings and their place in the landscape. The precise compositions reveal not just the architectural ideas behind a building's surface, but also the visions and hopes of an entire age. A sense of humanity is always present in his work, even when the human figure is absent from the actual photographs. Today, a great many of the buildings documented by Shulman have disappeared or been crudely converted, but the thirst for his pioneering images is stronger than ever before. This is a vivid journey across six decades of great architecture and classic photography through the famously incomparable eyes of Julius Shulman--Jacket blurb
Angels & Franciscans : innovative architecture from Los Angeles and San Francisco by Bill Lacy( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gehry talks : architecture + process by Frank O Gehry( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gehry Talks: Architecture + Process documents all of his new work of this decade, tracing his evolution from a southern California architect known for his idiosyncratic use of materials and collaboration with local artists, to an international figure whose fluid, hitherto undreamt-of forms surge beyond the aesthetic and technical constraints of the twentieth century. From the titanium-wrapped curves of the Guggenheim Bilbao to the binocular facade of the Chiat-Day Headquarters in California, his innovative structural ideas evoke a sense of freedom and spontaneity while, at the same time, displaying the utmost control. Unbound by guidelines of symmetry or the grid's delineation, his structures spring forth, engaged in a seemingly limitless play of ideas - ever-changing in both the multitudinous combinations of shapes suggested by the form and the depth of the conceptual associations implied by the design. Fish and snake motifs birl upon his buildings' rippling surfaces, while light follows the asymmetrical trajectories of their metallic folds. Though controversial and daring, his works always possess an elegance that lends warmth and humane scope to each project, regardless of the level of innovation - as evinced in contexts as varying as the complicated, and unrealized, plan of the Lewis House in Lyndhurst, Ohio, or the clarity of the idea behind the Ustra office building in Hannover, Germany." "This illustrated presentation features twenty-four projects, including the Chiat-Day Headquarters in Venice, California; the Team Disneyland Administration Building in Anaheim, California; the Vitra Furniture Museum and Factory in Weil am Rhein, Germany; and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. The book features insightful essays by editor Mildred Friedman and architecture critic Michael Sorkin, as well as photographs of buildings that have been completed since the publication of the original volume."--Jacket
Gehry draws by Frank O Gehry( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gehry has described drawing as his way of "thinking aloud"; Gehry Draws traces that thinking through 29 major projects, providing a privileged view of the creative practice of a master architect. More than 360 drawings (most of which are previously unpublished) and more than 400 additional illustrations chart the evolution of Gehry images from marks on the page to three-dimensional models to completed buildings. Horst Bredekamp's introduction relates Gehry's drawing methods to the concept of "disegno," as practiced by Leonardo and Durer - not only the act of drawing and modeling but also the dynamics of creative thinking." "Gehry himself describes his method for Bredekamp in several explanatory sketches, and Bredekamp applies this to a study of drawings made for specific Gehry commissions. Virtual-reality filmmaker Rene Daalder and writer Mark Rappolt return this discussion to the twenty-first century, looking at, among other things, analog methods in the digital world of contemporary architecture."--Jacket
