The first time I saw the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao I was amazed and perhaps a bit confused by this architect’s awe-inspiring artform. It was unlike any building I had ever seen. Gehry, one of the most influential architects of our time, has continued to create extraordinary assemblages for 60 years.
“…Gehry’s work is an example of the Deconstructivist style—a post-structuralist aesthetic that challenges accepted design paradigms of architecture while breaking with the modernist ideal of form following function.” Biography.com
Gehry was given the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 1989—an award meant “to honor a living architect or architects whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision, and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture.”
