frank gehry: ‘I have an idea’
21_21 design sight, tokyo, japan
on view until february 7, 2016

 

a new exhibition documenting the life and work of architect frank gehry has opened at the 21_21 design sight museum in tokyo. as one of his generation’s most revered and talked-about architects, gehry has gained a reputation for upending architectural norms with attention grabbing designs such as bilbao’s guggenheim museum, which opened in 1997, and the fondation louis vuitton, which opened just last year.

the exhibition focuses on the bold ideas that are the driving force behind frank gehry’s creativity, tying together their background and process with his unwavering conviction. the presentation is directed by tsuyoshi tane, a young japanese architect who has worked extensively in his home country, as well as europe. tane focuses on gehry’s ‘power of ideas’, which greatly affected his own work, composing the exhibition from the three perspectives of ‘architecture’, ‘people’, and ‘technology’.

gehry’s buildings are not based on overnight thoughts, cheap ideas, and spurs of the moment,’ states tsuyoshi tane. ‘ideas are tested, built up and broken down, beaten and examined, bullied, and abandoned. gehry believes in the toughest, most resilient ideas that survive the jealousies, temptations, and meddling of others. designing a building requires a range of conditions to be fulfilled, including client requirements, functions, budget, time constraints, and regulations.’
