by Mildred FriedmanOrginally published a few yr.s back I just found and read it. This is a excellent book as Frank Gehry himself shares various aspects of his process of designing; and, for that matter his influences, use of materials, and new techologies he employs.
Maybe more that anyone of this time, Gehry reflects innovation and his constant bravery to reach out beyond the norm, beyond convention and be an explorer. Maybe it was his own, "dumb little house," in ca. that got it going, that got him to think different, to challenge convention.
His rough sketches are of particular beauty and inspiration... and, his story of how he first resisted designing furniture are insights into his process; and, his inspiration which was drawn from his personal interest in 'ice hockey.' I would suggest this is a great primer for understanding and appreciating Frank Gehry and his 'process.'
