New, 6 comments

The Australian press are in a lather over the news that architect Frank Gehry has been tapped to design a new business facility for Sydney's University of Technology (UTS). ABC News quotes Former New South Wales government architect Chris Johnson, who explains Gehry's designs to the non-initiated. "If you want a building that stands out and everyone points at, he's the guy to get," Johnson tells the paper. "He tries to make sure buildings don't look like they're static, that they're actually moving or shaking or wobbling. He's not big on straight lines - you don't just get a straight rectangle with Frank Gehry." [ABC]
