Frank O. Gehry : the complete works by Francesco Dal Co( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"American architect Frank O. Gehry is one of the great architects of the twentieth century. His Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, completed in 1997, has been heralded as the most important building of its time. Yet his exceptional career has never been comprehensively presented. This first major monograph on Gehry's work includes more than 250 buildings and projects designed throughout his forty-year career, each fully documented with photographs, presentation drawings, and Gehry's own sketches." "The architect's early work - the Davis Studio and Residence in Malibu, the multistage renovation of the Hollywood Bowl, the first remodeling of his own house in Santa Monica - explores various strains of modern architecture in an attempt to establish a personal voice." "Most recently, Gehry's work has experimented with complex forms and sculptural geometries and includes a group of significant cultural projects, including the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, the American Center in Paris, and the Frederick R. Weisman Museum at the University of Minnesota."--Jacket
Sketches of Frank Gehry by Mirage Enterprises( Visual )
20 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Thanks to computer technology, Frank Gehry's minimal, erratically penned, squiggly sketches are translated by a team of model makers, software wizards, and engineers into plans that evolve into grand monuments. This exploration of Gehry's basic philosophy, early influences, and somewhat mysterious process, provide a fresh perspective into how architecture, and this architect, works

Frank Gehry, architect by Frank O Gehry( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 920 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

Frank Gehry : the houses by Mildred S Friedman( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 332 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."--BOOK JACKET

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 329 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."--BOOK JACKET

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Architecture and its photography by Julius Shulman( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 279 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
