Frank Gehry Discusses Architecture and Beauty
Renowned architect Frank Gehry will speak as part of the Pratt Institute School of Architecture’s fall 2010 lecture and events series at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, November 10, 2010, in Memorial Hall Auditorium on Pratt’s Brooklyn Campus.
Gehry will converse with Julie Iovine, executive editor of The Architect’s Newspaper, and Yael Reisner, author of Architecture and Beauty: Conversations with Architects about a Troubled Relationship, which is based on 16 interviews Reisner conducted with some of the world's most creative designers, including Gehry, on their beliefs, experiences, and position on aesthetics. The 16 designers discuss their formative experiences, creative processes and motivations, and whether they think that beauty is integral or nonessential to architecture.
The event is free and open to the public.
