An authoritative compendium on the main masterpieces of Frank Gehry, including 480 illustrations and photographs, produced in collaboration with Cahiers d'Art.
Frank Gehry's architecture has had the rare distinction of pleasing critics, academics, and the public alike. When he was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1989, Vanity Fair has called him "the most important architect of our age." Jean-Louis Cohen is France's most authoritative historian of twentieth-century architecture. He has published more than forty books and curated numerous architectural expositions. He is the Sheldon H. Solow professor in the History of Architecture department at NYU's Institute of Fine Arts and holds a chair at the College de France.
"In the context of Gehry's long career of around 180 completed projects, the number of 'masterpieces' is high; Cohen's book collects 38 such buildings spanning six decades, from 1961 to 2021." -A WEEKLY DOSE OF ARCHITECTURE
