Frank Gehry
Born in 1929, Frank Gehry studied architecture at the University of Southern California and studied City Planning at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. He developed projects of private and public city planning in both America and Japan. Gehry's architecture is characterized by its bold use atypical construction materials resulting in structures that are profoundly sculptural. Gehry's best-known works include the titanium-clad Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain; Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles; Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, France; MIT Ray and Maria Stata Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts; The Vontz Center for Molecular Studies on the University of Cincinnati campus; Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle; New World Center in Miami Beach; Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis; Dancing House in Prague; the Vitra Design Museum and the MARTa Herford museum in Germany; the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto; the Cinémathèque Française in Paris; and 8 Spruce Street in New York City. As an industrial designer, Gehry created a range of furniture in the early 1970s composed of cardboard known as Easy Edges (several pieces are now produced by Vitra), and much-celebrated furniture collections for Knoll in 1992 and Heller in 2004.  Gehry has also created designs for Alessi and Tiffany.
