Frank O. Gehry : the complete works by Francesco Dal Co( Book )
36 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,202 libraries worldwide
"American architect Frank O. Gehry is one of the great architects of the twentieth century. His Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, completed in 1997, has been heralded as the most important building of its time. Yet his exceptional career has never been comprehensively presented. This first major monograph on Gehry's work includes more than 250 buildings and projects designed throughout his forty-year career, each fully documented with photographs, presentation drawings, and Gehry's own sketches." "The architect's early work - the Davis Studio and Residence in Malibu, the multistage renovation of the Hollywood Bowl, the first remodeling of his own house in Santa Monica - explores various strains of modern architecture in an attempt to establish a personal voice." "Most recently, Gehry's work has experimented with complex forms and sculptural geometries and includes a group of significant cultural projects, including the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, the American Center in Paris, and the Frederick R. Weisman Museum at the University of Minnesota."--BOOK JACKET
Sketches of Frank Gehry by Sydney Pollack( visu )
25 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,005 libraries worldwide
Thanks to computer technology, Frank Gehry's minimal, erratically penned, squiggly sketches are translated by a team of model makers, software wizards, and engineers into plans that evolve into grand monuments. This exploration of Gehry's basic philosophy, early influences, and somewhat mysterious process, provide a fresh perspective into how architecture, and this architect, works
Frank Gehry, architect by Frank O Gehry( Book )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 940 libraries worldwide
"Since the 1997 completion of what many consider his greatest achievement - the stunning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain - Frank O. Gehry has soared to the forefront of contemporary American architecture. Long recognized by his peers for his innovative designs, Gehry now enjoys a new level of prominence in the popular imagination. This book, the catalogue of the first large-scale retrospective of Gehry's work in 15 years, examines the architect's unique vision and provides the historical perspective with which to interpret the audacious accomplishments." "Essays by noted museum curators and architectural historians explore his iconoclastic spirit and trace his melding of unconventional materials and forms. Photographs, drawings, plans, and scale models communicate the breadth and complexity of Gehry's work and show how, in his view of architecture as sculptural space, Gehry has opened up a world of new possibilities for architecture."--BOOK JACKET

Frank Gehry : the houses by Mildred S Friedman( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 338 libraries worldwide
"One of the great architects of our time, Frank Gehry has revolutionized the use of materials in design and redefined how architects use computers as a design tool to advance form-making as we know it. He has achieved worldwide fame for such large-scale public projects as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California, but it was in private houses that Gehry first explored and interrogated the principles of modern architecture. In these houses - most notably his own, in Santa Monica, California - Gehry distorted, expanded, and collapsed the modernist box, exploring everyday materials (corrugated metal, unfinished plywood, and chain link), experimenting with color, and challenging accepted notions about geometry and structure. In houses such as the Schnabel House in Brentwood, California, and the Winton Guest House in Wayzata, Minnesota, he experimented with collage and assemblage. More recently, Gehry's work has taken on sculptural forms, aided by new structural and geometric potentials of digital design, as in the near-legendary Lewis House in Lyndhurst, Ohio. Color photographs, sketches, and plans create an illuminating visual record of some of the most groundbreaking, seminal projects of Gehry's oeuvre."--BOOK JACKET
Building Stata : the design and construction of Frank O. Gehry's Stata Center at MIT by Nancy Joyce( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 331 libraries worldwide
"The architectural drawings and photographs - 300 of them in color - in Building Stata document the making of the Stata Center from concept to concrete reality. The photographs by Richard Sobol portray a work in progress, evoking the beauty of its architectural form and capturing the telling detail - the building's sculptured shape against a clear blue sky, or construction workers perched on a massive curve of metal."--BOOK JACKET
