Sketches of Frank Gehry


I watched the Sketches of Frank Gehry today on DVD.  I was somehow expecting him to be more of a rock star architect but he comes across as very down to earth and often even under confident.  He spends a lot of the movie talking about how he stresses over his designs and has to become suitable frustrated with something before he can get it right.  You get a good sense of his creative process  and approaches by the end.  There are also some  great quotes from Gehry like 'That is so stupid looking, it's great'.  After I was done watching, I immediately ordered a copy on Amazon.  You can watch the movie trailer here.
