With the recent triumph in Bilbao, Frank Gehry became one of the two or three living architects whose names are known outside the field. Within architecture and the arts, however, Gehry has longstanding and tremendous respect, and this conversation with the architectural historian and Getty Center Founding Director, Kurt W. Foster, testifies to the ways in which Gehry's concepts continue to invigorate not just the language of architecture, but the arts in general. The implicit sculpture of Gehry's work reveals a communion between artistic disciplines, and he has collaborated with the likes of Serra, Kelley, and Koons. This book furthers that open dialogue - which Gehry clearly views as essential - between the arts.
