While most of the coverage of architect Frank Gehry's interview with Thomas Pritzker's at the Aspen Ideas Festival a few weeks ago has focused on his argument with the president of the Project for Public Spaces, Fred Kent, Gehry spent a good portion of the interview talking about the design of Disney Hall. This clip from the interview goes into greater detail on his design and thought process than we've seen in the past. What he glosses over: "construction delays." What he admits: he initially resisted metal cladding for Disney Hall, because "it's hard to light metal" and it "looks like a cheap refrigerator." Find out why he changed his mind above.
