Abitare has published an old interview Franco Raggi conducted with Frank Gehry that seems to date to the eighties. Gehry on the rough materials used in his Santa Monica house: "My loathing for new materials comes for an interest in saving money, and projects that become cheaper and cheaper and cheaper. The model for that in art is Jasper Johns’ paintings with cans and bottles or the way Donald Judd used ionized metal. It has to do with the idea that it is not the material of things that is beautiful as much as the way they are used. You can make exciting spaces with any kind of material at all. So why not use cheaper materials?" [Abitare, image via]
