Film Screening: Sketches of Frank GehryFilm Screening: Sketches of Frank Gehry
Join Peter Clegg at the University of Bath to watch Director Sydney Pollack’s first-feature length documentary about acclaimed architect, Frank O. Gehry. One of the towering figures of 20th and 21st Century architecture Pollack’s film is a mesmerizing portrait of the man and his work.
Beginning with Gehry’s own original sketches for each major project, the film explores Gehry’s process of turning these abstract drawings, first into tangible, three-dimensional models, and then into finished buildings of titanium and glass, concrete and steel, wood and stone.
The screening will be accompanied by discussion with Peter Clegg.
