GEHRY IN SYDNEY: THE DR CHAU CHAK WING BUILDING, UTS. Ed. by Liisa Naar and Stewart Clegg. Images Publishing Group Pty Ltd, Mulgrave, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 282 pp. with 206 ills. (132 col.). 25 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781864705911 In English.
Publisher's description: Frank O Gehry, one of the most influential architects of his generation, is famous for many iconic buildings. Works to date include the Dancing Building, Prague, Czech Republic (1996); the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Spain (1997) and, in the United States, the Weatherhead School of Management, Ohio (2002), the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles (2003), and the Peter B. Lewis Library at Princeton University (2008). The distinctive nature of Gehry's design for his first building in Australia, the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building at the University of Technology Sydney, is showcased in this richly illustrated monograph. The design is unlike anything Gehry has previously constructed. In creating the building skin Gehry designed an undulating and corbelled brick veneer for the eastern fašade facing the city, which was laid entirely by hand, while for the western fašade he created a chevron pattern in large sheets of glass. The book provides a fresh analysis of Gehry's working process and offers insightful perspectives on the context, negotiation, commission, design and construction of the building. It is illuminated by many of the Gehry Partners models for the building and rich photographic essays, as well as the architect's unique sketches.
