Paris Frank Gehry Retrospective Debuts in LA

The U.S. debut of a major retrospective examining nearly six decades of work by the most famous architect working today, Frank Gehry, recently opened at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and it’s a dazzler. The exhibition traces the arc of Gehry’s career from the early 1960s, when he opened his LA studio, to the present.

Through more than 200 drawings and 60 models, you’ll follow the development of over 60 landmark projects. New models of work currently in design or construction have been added to the LACMA presentation of the show, organized by Paris’s Centre Pompidou.

Among the most fascinating aspects is seeing Gehry’s pioneering work in adopting the digital rendering technologies of aerospace and automobile design to architecture, dramatically impacting the making of cities. “The models are beyond what we can fathom; twisted structures that defy gravity and flaunt defiance in the face of convention,” writes reviewer Katie Antonsson. “Stranger still: these buildings exist. At the end of the day, this exhibit isn’t about architecture or design or urbanity. It’s about wonder.”
