4.0 out of 5 stars Just beatiful!
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars No big insights but a decent picture book.
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...

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gehry's Most..., 3 Sep 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Frank O.Gehry: Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao (Hardcover)
For those who feel moved by Gehry's work, this is the most comprehensive process of what goes behind of a masterful creator. The qualities of pictures describe ambiance as a mere basis of a created coherence of exteriors and interiors, It depicts clearly that light executes shape in space.
A daring manage of form that pushes further the preceding works. This project is Frank Gehry's imagination-execution ultimate that will be a challenge to overcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent discussion of Gehry's Design Process, 25 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Frank O.Gehry: Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao (Hardcover)
The collaborator and wife of Clas Olenburgh has written a very clear depiction of the series of events and creative process by which Gehry arrived arrived at his design. This book covers his working relationships with subordinates, his various modes of sketching, the form ideas he struggled with, the history of some of the forms he worked with within his own opus and the evolution of the overall design from early site visits through computer modelling.
