Gehry's gallery: sculpture and architecture

This year's RIBA Gold Medal winner Frank Gehry has latterly been known to the public for avant-garde works such as the hugely popular Guggenheim in Bilbao and his £40 million Experience Music Project in Seattle (AJ 2.10.97), a characteristically colourful and sculpted series of structures inspired by electronic guitars to represent the Jimi Hendrix memorabilia inside. Frank O Gehry (his name at birth was Frank Owen Goldberg) has long been an exponent of architecture as pure art and sculpture, experimenting with models and materials and often using motifs such as the fish, whose 'perfect' form his buildings seek to mimic. Here we present a snapshot of some of Gehry's myriad works.
