Profusely illustrated with 308 illustrations (295 in color ). This quirky book opens backwards and literally flows in all directions like Gehry's designs. It Examines the innovative design process of the celebrated Canadian-born American architect through a presentation of sketches, models and computer-generated images of ten current projects in development at his firm, including commercial and institutional structures in the United States, Canada, Panama, Spain, Italy and Israel (Astor Place Hotel, New York City, MIT's Stata Center, the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Jerusalem site, Center for Human Dignity and the Museum of Tolerance). The first section of the book presents his architectural staff with head shots in color. A subsequent section presents projects, processes, and various elements of the firm's "work flow" dynamic. This detailed and intimate portrait of Gehry's architecture studio reveals how central model-making is to the process of realizing a project.
