A conversation with internationally-renowned architect Frank Gehry.
Canadian-born architect Frank Gehry is the founder and a partner of Gehry Partners, LLC, a full service firm with broad international experience in academic, commercial, museum, performance, and residential projects. He established his practice in 1961 in Los Angeles. His well-known work—including such buildings as the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain, the Biomuseo in Panama, the Dancing House in Prague, the Neuer Zollhof in Germany, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and many others—has "revolutionized architecture’s aesthetics, social and cultural role, and relationship to the city" both in Los Angeles and internationally.
As part of the Pacific Council’s focus on Los Angeles as a global city, the discussion will examine not only Gehry’s remarkable architectural accomplishments but also his global reach and experience designing and building abroad. Gehry epitomizes the "Global LA" ethos in that his work is sought and celebrated all over the world as well as by global players centered in Los Angeles, where his practice is headquartered.
