Frank Gehry: Before He Was Famous

New, 11 comments

Before he was immortalized on the "Simpsons," or designing jewelry, or became the poster boy for "starchitecture" Gehry was a young(er) lad talking about fish, furniture and pornographic comic books. This video, via Archinect, from 1990 features Gehry "tak[ing] a whistlestop tour of his early work, from his house in Venice Beach to the American Center in Paris, (which was under construction)." What's striking is how funny and candid he was back then, especially in contrast to more recent video lectures. Extra points for correct use of the yiddish word "ongepatsht."
