At age 84, with a slew of world famous designs to his name, Frank Gehry (b. 1929) has nothing left to prove. Known for his supple, shimmering metal designs that defy logic and appear alive, he has fundamentally reinvented what architecture can be. This film follows the building of his latest project, the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. In the process, it examines his four key phases of creativity, epitomized by four great buildings: Gehry House, Vitra Museum, Guggenheim Bilbao and MIT’s Stata Center.
