Sketches of Frank Gehry

Art House Film Series: Sketches of Frank Gehry (2006, 86 minutes, PG-13), In the Little Theater. FREE.

Architect Frank Gehry loves to sketch. It is the beginning of his architectural process. From his sketches flow the models, one after another, each a refinement, that will eventually become finished buildings unlike any others in the architectural world. It is this sketch quality, what he calls the “tentativeness, the messiness,” that Gehry clings to as a way of guarding against formula or repetition.

And it is this sketch quality that acclaimed feature film director Sydney Pollack was so keen to explore in the film SKETCHES OF FRANK GEHRY, seen on AMERICAN MASTERS.
