Favorite Architects | Frank Gehry
I think that there is no person in the World who doesn’t know Frank Gehry, but anyway for those who don’t know him, you need to read this post!! Because this guy is amazing !! Sony even made a whole movie about him – Sketches of Frank Gehry . It’s a great movie! So here is a short story about him:
Frank Gehry was born in Toronto, Canada in 1929 and became an American citizen, based in Los Angeles, California. His first project that became tourist attraction is his private residence in Santa Monica, California, which jump-started his career. Gehry says: “But my father thought I was a dreamer, I wasn’t gonna amount to anything….”. Yes, his father’s words sound funny now since Frank is one of the most famous architects nowadays.
