This well curated exhibit showcases an amazing collection of all Frank Gehry's works to date, including Swire Properties' newly commissioned project in Hong Kong. 12 "limited edition" residential towers will be designed and built on 53 Stubbs Road, on the Peak.
This is Gehry’s first project in Greater China and the comprehensive exhibition follows Gehry through the span of his illustrious career over the decades, from chicken scrawling sketches, to 3D models for different phases of construction and the complete model of the final product.
The exhibition takes one through the raw thought process leading to the hands on work—all this set against the printed backdrops of the final monumental structures. There are videos, projections, intricate 3D models as well as lamps and furniture that Gehry designed.
Here is a glimpse into the eyes of this architectural genius who shares snippets from his arts and crafts childhood and the inspiration he finds in adulthood.
