Frank Gehry’s Strategies “How do I get some Sky in there?”

From  eliinbar’s sketchbook 2012 – Frank Gehry’s Strategies

Frank Gehry was asked. “How do you get some sky to your buildings?” And his answer was “I don’t know what I do, I just “punch” a few holes here and there and….. somehow they end up being in the right place”.

In this post I will try to learn from Frank Gehry what are his varied -strategies to get “some sky” into his buildings….

Notice that Gehry puts “sky” into his buildings rather than open holes in wallsto let light and air penetrate his buildings”.

I will cover only a small part of Gehry’s variety of strategies.

To be continued in my next posts….

    hello Eli
    Frank Gehry – the sample of reading “deconstruction” on the one level with Jacque Derrida in the work “L’ecriture et la difference”.
