Canadian-born American architect Frank Gehry is considered one of the most important and influential architects in contemporary architecture. This issue of ‘a+u’ features drawings by Frank Gehry that span three decades, from his early works in the 1960s to the “exploding” box in Los Angeles, through to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in the late 1990s. While the projects showcased vary greatly, they document the emergence of Gehry’s radical style, which he would pursue in the following decades. With texts by Jean-Louis Cohen and Megan Meulemans, as well as drawings, sketches, and photographs.
