Considered by many to be the most important architect of our age, Frank Gehry set a precedent for modern design in the second half of the 20th century.
Gehry is most famous for buildings such as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Gehry has spent his career challenging architecture with his eccentric design ideas.
Frank Gehry was born in Toronto, Canada, and earned a degree in architecture from the University of Southern California before studying urban planning at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design.
Beyond his architecture, jewelry design, and even yacht building, Gehry made iconic modern furniture. Gehry's seating collection that sought to use everyday materials in inventive ways - produced by Vitra and Herman Miller - is evidence of his ongoing influence on modern design.
