Let Gehry Be Swooshy

New, 8 comments

Frank Gehry is defending himself and architects like himself who like to throw a little bit of artistic expression into their buildings. "Most of our cities built since the war are bland," he says. "They're modernist, they're cold, and now architects want to go back to that. But there are people in the community who want a little more juice, something to relate to, and so they seek out artists and the artists they seek out have become very wealthy and they have big studios." Gehry also answers those who criticize the crumpled aluminum foil style he has become know for. "I can do square too." [The Oberver]
