It is a great first in Europe! The work of Frank Gehry, one of the greatest contemporary architects, is presented at the Center Pompidou from October 8, 2014. World famous for its buildings with incredible aesthetics, Frank Gehry multiplies projects in France today. We rush to discover his extraordinary projects!

A major figure in contemporary architecture

The emblematic creations of Frank Gehry have revolutionized the aesthetics of architecture! It was in Los Angeles that he began his practice alongside artists such as Ed Ruscha, Richard Serra and Claes Oldenburg. The extension of his own house in Santa Monica is also a fine example of his architectural practice: the renewal of materials and design methods are at the center of his thinking. Thus, he easily introduces poor materials such as cardboard, sheet metal or industrial wire mesh in his creations. Considered an architect and urban planner, he designed breathtaking buildings like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.


225 drawings and 67 models

No exhibition had previously brought together so many Frank Gehry projects. Sixty major projects, divided into 6 areas, retrace the different stages of its journey. You will thus be able to discover a beautiful selection of original documents, 225 drawings and 67 models which allow you to follow the evolution of the plastic, architectural and artistic language of the American architect.
