I have watched the movie "Sketches Of Frank Gehry". I really enjoyed the movie and it took me back to my design lab days. I liked it so much, that I have watched it a couple of times. I am more of a conservative / nuts and bolts type architect, so the buildings designed by Frank Gehry tend to register on the far end of my spectrum! The Walt Disney Concert Hall I like, I don't understand the outside, but I like it. The Lou Ruvo Center, I may never understand that one. After watching the movie, I think I would really like Frank if I were to socialize with him. He seems to be a nice guy, but we don't always know how people are behind the scenes. I am more of a form follows function type of guy, so I design from the inside out. Franks seems to design from the inside out, then just an outside and then puts them together. So his architectural skins don't necessarily jive with his inside (well it seems that way to me?). I don't quite get Zaha Hadid either, but I enjoy looking at her free flowing buildings. As I was told a long time ago, "It takes all types to fill the freeways." I guess Frank and Zaha are just driving in a different lane?
