A decade after the Peter B. Lewis Building opened at Case Western Reserve, internationally renowned architect Frank O. Gehry will receive an honorary degree at the university’s 2013 Commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 19
To mark the occasion, we bring you this On Point Special.
On Point sits down with super architect Frank Gehry of the Guggenheim-Bilbao, and many more, on the future of what humans build. Architect Frank Gehry hates the glib tag “starchitect,” but that’s a piece of what he is: the super architect behind so many of the most thrilling, imaginative, challenging new structures in the world. The Guggenheim Bilbao museum, the titanium clad “gargantuan bouquet of writhing silver fish” in Spain, the soaring, kaleidoscope of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, tradition-busting, era-making, path-breaking designs all over the world. He’s with us today. This hour On Point: Super architect Frank Gehry and the meaning of what humans build.
