Frank Gehry retrospective opens at the Centre Pompidou

A lifelong sense of creativity

Frank Gehry’s impressive body of work is going on show in Paris this week in a retrospective exhibition focused on the contemporary architect

The show that debuts this week will be organised around two key themes – 'urbanism' and 'development of new systems of digital design and fabrication'.

It will feature 225 of Pritzker Prize winner Frank Gehry's drawings and 67 models, accompanied by texts and documentation, and serves as the first global retrospective and major European show of Gehry's work – which includes the iconic Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Beekman Tower in New York as well as his latest French project, the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, where the brand's SS15 presentation took place last week.

Organised with the help of the architect's practice Frank Gehry Partners, the exhibition will trace the development of Gehry's career from the 1960s to the present day, and is a must visit for anyone with the slightest interest in architecture.

Frank Gehry will run from today until January 26 at the Centre Pompidou, Paris.
