Product Description

Synopsis

This is a celebration of the architecture of Frank O. Gehry's Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. It details the design process that is an intrinsic part of Gehry's revolutionary approach: his use of non-traditional materials and his sensitivity to the environments of his buildings, his method of envisaging a building through semi-automatic drawings and hand-made models. The book documents the history of Museum from conception, and through design and construction. The author, an art historian and artist who has collaborated with Gehry on various architectural and art projects, had access to the architect and his studio. The text is accompanied by colour photographs of the building and reproductions of Gehry's drawings and models. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

For those who love gehry's architecture ans specially guggenheim museum in Bilbao this is the perfect book. I love it because it contains so beatiful photografs as the museum is. Congratulations specially to the photografer! For those who haven't seen the museum, when they see this book, they will certainly visit it. For those who have seen the museum but don't know the book: buy it.

this is a great book for students and professionals alike. It takes an indepth look at the design process and how such an abstract building is created in the real world.

By A Customer on 23 Aug. 1998
Format: Hardcover
This book does not provide any exceptionally insights into the Gehry's thinking and the use of computer modeling is no big surprise to anyone. The best book on Gehry, that I know about, is the monograph by El Croquis (which was published before the Guggenheim's realization). That said, I visited the museum shortly after it opened (bought book there) and it's a wonderful design. Although photos are never as good as the experience of being there, if you can't afford to visit Spain, a decent picture book will show you what you missed.
