Buildings by Frank Gehry: http://www.listphile.com/The_Buildings_of_Frank_Gehry

Frank Owen Gehry, born February 28, 1929 is a Canadian-American Pritzker Prize-winning architect based in Los Angeles, California.

His buildings, including his private residence, have become tourist attractions. His works are often cited as being among the most important works of contemporary architecture in the 2010 World Architecture Survey, which led Vanity Fair to label him as “the most important architect of our age”.

I have only recently discovered the work of Frank Gehry due to this blog….each design is amazing and almost look un-realistic! The Walt Disney Concert hall is my favourite as I love the unusual design and the way the building looks different from every angle.

8 Spruce Street

8 Spruce Street (formerly the Beekman Tower) is a 76-story skyscraper designed by architect Frank Gehry currently under construction in the New York City borough of Manhattan at 8 Spruce Street, just south of City Hall Plaza and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Frank Gehry is also the first architect to ever appear on The Simpsons. (Unfortunately I was not able to locate the English version!)
