As examined in this highly visual biography, the extraordinary work of this 20th century architect will expand readers’ understanding of what architecture is and what it can be. Gehry’s work knows no bounds: his swooping, shimmering masterpiece, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain; the whimsical facade of an advertising agency shaped like binoculars; the sturdy, ribbon-like Easy Edge chairs made of cardboard; glowing lamps shaped like fish. Gehry’s is a world of possibilities. As presented here by Greenberg and Jordan, it also has the power to excite the imagination. The story of Gehry’s life is woven into a narrative that examines his work with great understanding and appreciation. (Age 9 and older)
