frank gehry. since 1997 on display at the triennale design museum milan, is the first exhibition dedicated to the canadian architect, bringing together a selection of projects created since the ground-breaking stylistic change introduced by the guggenheim museum in bilbao in 1997, through to the present day. curated by germano celant, the exhibition has been produced in collaboration with frank o. gehry and gehry partners llp, and it is also made possible by the assistance of international institutions such as the guggenheim museum in bilbao, ago art gallery of ontario in montreal, and dac – dansk arkitektur center in copenhagen.

the projects on show, have been selected together with the american architect. they form an exhibition that examines not only the buildings but also the way they interact with their surrounding areas, in a town-planning approach to architecture: from the dz bank building in berlin (1995-2001), to ago – art gallery of ontario (2000-2008), the jay pritzker pavilion in chicago (1999-2004), and the interactive corporation headquarters in new york (2003-2007), through to the atlantis sentosa resort in singapore and the abu dhabi branch of the guggenheim museum, on which design work started in 2005 and 2006.

the buildings, which are the real stars of the work carried out by gehry partners llp over the past ten years, are illustrated through films, photographs, drawings, and models, showing the various stages in the creation of the project, as well as through the words of the architect himself.

at the same time, there are videos illustrating the materials adopted for the technologies used by gehry in the various stages of the creative and construction process. interviews and displays illustrate the origin and particularities of the gehry technologies group, the way catia software design compares with traditional forms, and its complexity and the potential for optimisation that it brings to the creation of architecture.

the exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue published by skira, which illustrates all frank o. gehry’s projects, whether or not being shown in milan, from the stylistic innovation of the guggenheim museum in bilbao through to the present day.

introduced by critical essay by germano celant, the book retraces all the projects created since 1997 by the architect who won the 1989 pritzker architecture prize. most of the material has not been published before, and includes drawings by hand, office designs, 3-d works, models, and photographs of the finished works: from the walt disney concert hall in los angeles (1989-2003) to the corcoran gallery in washington dc (1999-2005), and the experience music project in seattle (1995-2000), through to the beekman street housing complex in new york (2003-2009).

  • Gehry review ( how to get rich easily):
    .- Find a marketing-idea.
    .- Make it very expensive (structure, materials).
    .- Offer to repeat it all around the world till people gets bored.
    .- And year 2009: how will he sell this architecture, now that we need eco-green-cheap-buildings??

  • DZ Bank Building is by far the most architecturally balanced in terms of design detail and composition; absolutely beautiful… I wonder how Frank Gehry would approach an eco-budgeted project?
