Размер: 30 mb
An insightful examination of the social planning and the individual subjectivity of the architecture of Frank Gehry.
Frank Gehry: The City and Music is the result of a unique collaboration between the architect and leading critic Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe. The book focuses on two projects, Gehry's unrealized proposal for the rehabilitation of Berlin's Museum Island and his soon to be completed Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles,while discussing other projects such as the Pavilion for the Performing Arts in Concord, California, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and the Experience Music Project in Seattle. Gehry's much debated relationship to Minimalist sculpture, uses of new building materials and attitude to tradition, are discussed with regard to his belief in architecture as a democratic practice which is at once practical and expressive.
