“Ante cualquier proyecto, estudio todas las posibilidades que se me ocurren tras analizar detalladamente un amplio abanico de elementos, empezando por los deseos del cliente y acabando en los detalles, pasando por la definición formal y el control del presupuesto. Durante dos meses, le doy vueltas a todo eso en mi cabeza. Luego, un día, me pongo ante la mesa y toda esa información se convierte en un dibujo, que fluye automáticamente desde el cerebro hasta el papel, pasando por la mano y el lápiz. Así nace mi arquitectura.”

Book + DVD Review: Gehry's Vertigo

Gehry's Vertigo by Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine
BêkaPartners, 2013
Book: Hardcover, 140 pages
DVD: All-Region PAL, 48 minutes

Last year I attended a conference where an architect from Frank Gehry's office—one of his offices, Gehry Technologies, to be precise—talked about the curtain wall for 8 Spruce Street, aka New York by Gehry. One of the points in his fairly technical and detailed talk focused on how the rippling facade is able to accommodate the window washing rig that travels up and down the building. The continuous tracks that extend from top to bottom allow such maintenance, a feature that was incorporated (and therefore considered) from an early stage. Such foresight is hardly present in Gehry's Guggenheim Bilbao, as expressed in the aptly named Gehry's Vertigo.
