Studio III architects' Hero Wednesday: Frank Gehry

Studio III architects’ hero of the week:

A real person…no pompous airs (maybe you’d disagree?), no ivory tower with the academic language of isolation to leave the rest of us wondering what he’s talking about…he’s just real and a seemingly simple guy but driven by amazing commitment and rigor. He no doubt believes in himself but also harrassingly questions himself and challenges his biases. He requires an all encompassing awareness of context to inform the new frontiers for his creations….he doesn’t simply cough up a new twist to the same ole thing (again perhaps some would disagree?!)and is highly intuitive as well as pragmatic. And he has done this on a mind boggling scale, all over the world, while balancing all the other requirements that preoccupy the rest of us trying to pull off a significant and meaningful practice!

Definitely a legend and one of the greatest of our time (weather you love or hate his work), and a simple, genuine guy….which is the really amazing part and why Frank Gehry is a hero for sure.

I wonder what he is like to work for (or with…?) and if anyone out there has a firsthand experience to share…please let us know!
