journal entry THREE: Frank O. Gehry

I was recently asked who my favorite architect was, while I had listed a few, Frank Gehry was notably on the top. If one looks at the architectural landscape of the last 20 years he above all has pioneered a new language for the visual form. Through his embracement of computer technology, primarily CATIA, and design exploration through materials, he bridged the gap from the conceptual design to a manufactured product. The result of this visionary spirit has enabled a new generation of architectural design to be realized.
