Learning from Frank Gehry . ….Chapter 3 – the “Clinging Statue Strategy”

From eliinbar’s Sketchbook 2011 Gehry’s “Clinging Statue Strategy”

In my previous posts I showed how Gehry succeeds to design sculptural buildings using the “Sculptural Warping Strategy”- (Disney’s concert hall and his own house) and preserves their initial functional program.

In this Post I will show Gehry’s early strategy ,preserving a Museum program, and still expresses his desire to a unique building, with sculptural characteristics.
