The internationally renowned Californian architect, Frank O. Gehry, talks about his buildings and his friends in art with Kurt W. Forster, Founding Director of the Getty Center and architectural historian at the ETH in Zurich. In his work together with artists such as Richard Serra, Claes Oldenburg and Frank Stella, but also with newcomers such as Mike Kelley and Jeff Koons, Gehry's approach to museum design demonstrates the possibility of fruitful dialogue between architecture and art - a dialogue which is all too rare nowadays. His most recent design, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, is in every sense a spectacular project. It is one of the world's first computer-assisted architectural designs and redefines the parameters of viable construction techniques. In his particular use of materials and forms, Frank O. Gehry has invented an architectural language that few could rival. It sets new standards that go far beyond post-Modernism - a fitting expression of the complexity of building and design today. (German edition available ISBN 3-89322-331-2) The architect: Frank O. Gehry has designed a large number of projects in Europe, Asia and the United States, including the Samsung Museum of Modern Art in Seoul/Korea (1994), the American Center in Paris (1994), the Vitra Design Museum, the Weil Factory on the Rhine (1989), and the Geffen Contemporary at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art (1983). His latest work is the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao (1997). He has been awarded numerous art prizes, including the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1989, which is regarded as the "Nobel Prize for Architecture".
