Frank Gehry: Shape Shifter

Architecture | Dec 2015 | BY Tali Jaffe

“His name did not ring a bell. He told us he was more involved with artists in Los Angeles than with his fellow architects. He did not seem to know many people at the party, and it did not take long to see that he was something of an outlier. But he was not a typical outlier, or he would not have been there at all. He was an outlier who wanted in, but, as I discovered as time went by, on his own terms. That evening began a conversation that has lasted for more than four decades.”

– From “Building Art: The Life and Work of Frank Gehry,” (Knopf) by Paul Goldberger.
