Frank Gehry

“Cross Check” Armchair, designed 1989–91, by Frank O. Gehry

(American (born Canada), 1929)

Frank O. Gehry, one of the best-known architects working today, is regarded for his innovative and occasionally controversial contributions to architecture and design. With a career spanning more than five decades, his projects encompass a global roster which includes the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Gehry’s home base of Los Angeles, California. His impact is represented not only in the museum's collection, which includes examples of his influential furniture and product designs, but also by the museum building itself. In May 2021, the completion of the Gehry-designed Core Project opened new and renovated public spaces and added an additional 20,000 square feet of new galleries in the heart of the museum’s historic building.
