Sketches of Frank Gehry

I've just seen "Sketches of Frank Gehry" which is a really nice little insight into the work and mind of Frank Gehry.

Sydney Pollack has put together a documentary which gives a lot more than the average magazine article would. Conversations with clients critics and even his therapist. Pollack, who declares his ignorance of architecture, opens Gehry's world in a bid to discover and explore.

Regardless of your preferences for architecture you have to admire the courage, sometimes verging on foolishness, of Gehry to not only propose his grandiose visions but then to bring them to fruition and deliver them. He has now become fashionable in some circles, probably an outcast in others, but works like Bilbao could have been an absolute disaster and many others would not have attempted them.
