Frank Gehry Exhibition Masterful Architecture Exhibition Opens

[22/09/11] 

A couple of weeks ago we wrote about Norman Foster’s exhibition and this week it’s Frank Gehry’s turn with a show in Taikoo Place. Contrary to popular belief Gehry’s not here to perform an architectural exorcism for Hong Kong (the city has a striking resemblance to the Sims) instead he’s here courtesy of Swire Properties. Together they’re working on his first building in Hong Kong, the lavish Opus residences, which will open in 2012.

Frank is a strikingly blunt name for a man of such creativity and the exhibition celebrates his work through sketches, models and images that give you a feel for his design processes. Highlights include the iconic Guggenheim in Bilbao which somehow looks like it sounds, the Novartis Campus Gehry Building in Basel and the soon to be residential development at 53 Stubbs Road.

A striking number of people would like to be architects in their next life and Gehry's show leaves you hoping you don’t come back with the half-life of a mosquito. It’s also free to get in and is open until 8pm which makes it an ideal stop between finishing work and starting supper. You’ll probably want to eat out, however, because returning to your 600 square foot apartment could be a little sobering.

All you need is a pencil.
