Frank Gehry

A figure who vacillates between the worlds of art and architecture, Frank Gehry has been anointed "the greatest architect we have today" by the godfather of modern architecture himself, Philip Johnson. Gehry's Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, completed in 1989, vaulted him to international fame, and his subsequent buildings have been similarly celebrated for imposing a new aesthetic of architecture: Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles, CA; Experience Music Project, Seattle, WA; Dancing House, Prague, Czech Republic, to name a few.

Using materials such as chain link fences, plywood, and corrugated metal, Gehry's design sense has been influenced by fish and a rebellion against cold Modernism and decorative Postmodernism. He has also designed furniture, a line of jewelry, household items, and sculptures. Gehry won the Pritzker Prize for architecture in 1989, the American Institute of Architects' Gold Medal in 1999, and the Woodrow Wilson Award for public service in 2004.
