    El Croquis 117 is a comprehensive monograph on the work of American architect Frank Gehry, covering his prolific period from 1994 to 2004. This era saw Gehry establish himself as one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, with his signature deconstructivist style.


    Gehry’s work is characterized by its use of fragmented forms, unexpected angles, and playful use of materials. This approach, known as deconstructivism, challenges traditional notions of harmony and order in architecture.

    Key Projects:

    • Museum of Contemporary Art, Bilbao, Spain (1997): This iconic museum is Gehry’s most famous work. The building’s undulating forms, made of titanium and glass, are inspired by the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
    • Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles, California (2003): This concert hall is another masterpiece of deconstructivist architecture. The building’s exterior is made of stainless steel, and its interior is a complex and curvaceous space.
    • Dancing House, Prague, Czech Republic (1996): This residential building is a playful and whimsical example of Gehry’s work. The building’s two towers are curved and twisted, and its façade is made of glass and steel.

    Beyond Form and Materiality:

    El Croquis 117 goes beyond showcasing Gehry’s stunning architectural creations. It delves into the theoretical underpinnings of his work, exploring his engagement with contemporary art, urbanism, and the relationship between architecture and the public realm. Essays by renowned critics and theorists provide insightful analyses of Gehry’s approach, making the book a valuable resource for architects, students, and anyone interested in cutting-edge architectural thought.

    A Legacy of Innovation:

    Frank Gehry’s work continues to inspire architects and artists worldwide. His innovative approach to form, materiality, and space has pushed the boundaries of architectural expression and challenged traditional notions of how buildings can be both functional and expressive. El Croquis 117 serves as a timeless testament to Gehry’s legacy and a valuable resource for understanding the ever-evolving landscape of architectural thought.
