Frank O. Gehry

Flagge Kanada


* February 28, 1929 Toronto

Unlike Claes Oldenburg, Seward Johnson or Jaume Plensa, for example, the architect and designer Frank O. Gehry does not create figures or sculptures. His monumental postmodern buildings are characterized above all by dynamic lines and the use of unusual materials. Gehry demonstratively turns away from the straightforward sobriety of modern buildings and instead combines irregular, chaotic shapes, angled planes, tilting spaces, inverted forms and broken geometry into a total piece of art. In this way, unique works are created in which art and buildings merge together.
