Here are some of Gehry’s Quotes from the officially introduction of the new Dr Chau Chak Wing Building business school at the University of Technology Sydney:
1.“Fundamentally, , it starts with a response to the brief. The client in this case wanted something that would break down the silos typical in a university and stimulate high levels of interaction, creativity and play”
2.“I met with the dean and his faculty and the brief was that the business school needed to open up to the creative processes a bit more and open themselves up to creative thinking.”
3.“You sense the need for creative play is human and we need it and we yearn for it.”
4.”My own creativity depends absolutely on the ability for “child like play”.
5.“My response to the brief was a “treehouse” design analogy – various platforms at different levels, connected by branches and open spaces in between”
