Frank Gehry's first exhibition

  • Comment

Frank Gehry's first exhibition - and the first by any living architect at this venue - is set to open at London's Sir John Soane Museum early next month. The show, from 7 May to 19 June, will include worktables from the Canadian's Santa Montica office cluttered with sketches, computer visualisations and the multi-coloured process models he uses to create designs in metal, wood, silver foil, paper and glass. Gehry-designed chairs will replace those designed by the Drawing Room by Soane himself. As well as the expected plethora of details about Guggenheim, also on show will be the Experience Music project in Seattle (above), a multi- media experience evoking Jimi Hendrix, and other current projects such as the Pariser Platz 3 in Berlin and the Weatherhead Business School at Cleveland Ohio. The Soane Gallery will show 20 of Gehry's original sketches. Admission is £2, or free to students. The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday 10.00 to 17.00.
