Esther da Costa Meyer analyzes his idiosyncratic style, his inspiration in the art of the past and of the present, and his contributions to the art of architectural draftsmanship. As often as possible, she allows Gehry to speak for himself.

Frank Gehry’s building design sketches, on display at the Princeton University Art Museum, provide insight into an architect who takes himself seriously as an artist. The drawings, the meat of the show, relate to a wide array of architectural projects over the last couple of decades from cities all over the world.

Esther da Costa Meyer teaches modern architecture and contemporary architecture. A native of Brazil, she specializes in issues of cultural translation involving architecture focusing on buildings erected by colonial powers in the Global South, as well as the emerging cultures of resistance that were themselves highly hybrid, transnational, and diasporic. Interested in issues pertaining to gender and design, she has published on architects Lilly Reich, Charlotte Perriand, and Lina Bo Bardi

World-renowned architect Frank Gehry considers drawing a conceptual tool: his
  • Esther de Costa Meyer has brought the true modus operandi of the workings of the world's most famous architect. When looking at the finished buildings conceived and designed by Frank Gehry, one immediately conjures images of him sitting in front of his computer creating his advant guard creations. To my amazement, nothing can be farther from the truth.
    The Author brings forth Gehry's true conceptualization of his genius. The basic tenants of Gehry's process is to assess what the client needs and instead of creating the structure from the outside in, Gehry does a flip-flop and goes from the inside out. Gehry doesn't touch a computer. The fact of the matter is that Gehry's first love is art and he begins his work by sketching his ideas on paper. In looking at these renderings, they broadly give the basis of architectural thought along with what I would call abstract artistic liberation. At first sight one can envision creative doodling. However in Gehry's grand scheme, he will refine the sketches and later his team of draftsmen will create models in various sizes. Only upon this long and creative process will it be given to his CAD team to be rendered on the computer.
    Gehry never touches a computer, he starts with sketches as it evolves on paper, models the structures and finally puts it on the computer chip. Gehry in essence is old school and is more of an artist/grand director of a majestic design symphony for all to see, work in and live in.
    These are great renderings and great insights from Esther de Costa Meyer, in which you can do yourself a favor and treat your senses to another world beyond the ordinary.

  • Beautiful piece of art, inside and out.

  • Great

  • The book design is exquisite. It will be a collectable at some point in the future. If you can't afford one of Gehry's cardboard chairs, this could get you started. Though beware .. it's small and not for sitting on !

  • This book is a jewel. The sleeve it comes in is a beautiful foil to the book itself. The text is wonderfully written and the images, though small, are very beautiful to look at. The book does a great job of showing the importance of his sketches in relation to his design process and finished architecture.
