Frank Gehry Revisited
TED has posted an enlightening conversation they had with Frank Gehry back in February 2002 in which the architect talks candidly about his path to becoming one of the most celebrated innovators of the 20th-century, the importance of (sometimes) failing, and how personal experience and collaboration play an integral part in the creative process. The creative force behind the Guggenheim in Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles will also serve as this year’s designer of the Serpentine Gallery’s pavilion, a temporary structure erected each year to serve as a provisional space for evening talks and events (and in the daytime, as a cafe). Past architects who’ve been bestowed the honor of designing the pavilion include Zaha Hadid and Rem Koolhaas, fellow winners of the Pritzker Architecture Prize. Gehry’s take on the pavilion (to be his first built structure in England) will be unveiled this summer and remain open for three months.
