Frank Gehry was a young man when he realized that it was possible to break away from the square box of most buildings. "I threw the grid away", he said.

How can a building give a feeling of movement and energy? How can workaday materials be used to create extraordinary spaces? How can an architect create something truly new?

Frank Gehry explains his answers and asks new questions in Frank O. Gehry: Outside In. From the Guggenheim Bilbao to cardboard furniture, from the "Fred and Ginger" building in Prague to his own house, Gehry's work is always dynamic and sometimes startling. Authors Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan make the ideas of this provocative architect accessible and inspiring to young readers in a biography of Gehry that shows his deepest influences. Full-color photographs, interactive sidebars, and a glossary complete the picture of this master builder.

Really neat pictures. I would use this as a book where children could look at the pictures only because the reading was almost a magazine for adults level. However children do appreciate being able to look at those kinds of books. Read full review
