Timing is everything…I just got a google feed and the subject happened to be about Frank Gehry, who I mentioned in my last post. Well, I have to follow up, for this is too coincidental. It is my goal to visit Bilbao one day, in Madrid (see earlier post on the metro), which has become my favorite contemporary piece of architecture, not so much for it’s incredible form, which is incredible–revolutionizing all previous, traditional building barriers–but for how it captures and reflects light. This blogger’s post, socializing finance, has inspired me to watch Sidney Pollack’s 2006 documentary, Sketches of Frank Gehry. I had forgotten all about it since it came out, but it’s about the creative process taking hold in one of the arts most substantial mediums of architecture. This art form has always been one of my favorites in art history because the architectural structure envelopes the viewer. My older son is an engineering student and is interested in architecture so one day he may actually create something of this measure. Meanwhile, I’m simply fascinated by how Gehry can get from his scribbled sketches on paper to actually building his architectural masterpieces.
