Inaugurating a landmark publication project on the drawings of one of America's greatest architects

This catalog--the first of eight planned volumes that will critically present the entire oeuvre of Toronto-born, Los Angeles-based architect Frank Gehry (born 1929) using his sketches as the primary graphic material--includes texts and high-quality images of individual works and preparatory drawings. The book explores the beginning of Gehry's conceptual thinking and his progression from paper architecture to poststructuralism.

Frank Gehry is the recipient of the 1989 Pritzker Architecture Prize. He was the subject of a Sydney Pollack documentary, Sketches of Frank Gehry, and Vanity Fair ran a cover story labeling him the most important architect of our age." His irreverent buildings, often incorporating swooping walls made of aluminum, titanium or stainless steel, are world-renowned attractions, and his iconic design for the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao made both Gehry and the Basque city world-famous.

This first catalogue raisonné of drawings was written by architecture scholar Jean-Louis Cohen in direct collaboration with Gehry. Cohen is one of the world's leading experts on modern architecture, and the Sheldon H. Solow Chair for the History of Architecture at New York University's Institute for Fine Arts. His numerous books include Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes.
