Frank Gehry

Frank Gehry is the founder and principal-in-charge of the architectual firm of Frank O. Gehry and Associates, Inc., Santa Monica, CA. Internationally acclaimed, Gehry's work has been described by New York Times architectual critic Paul Goldberger as "powerful essays in primal geometric form and...materials; and from an aesthetic standpoint, his buildings are among the most profound and brilliant works of architecture of our time." Gehry was awarded the premier accolade of the architectual field, the Pritzer Architectual Prize (1989), and is the recipient of numerous architectual design awards including the 1992 Wolf Prize (in art), and the 1992 Imperiale Award in Architecture. His recent work includes The American Center in Paris, the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota, the Center for the Visual Arts at University of Toledo and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain (currently in progress).
