Cool Spaces Speaks with Frank Gehry
With Cool Spaces, a new public television series that profiles the process and personalities behind contemporary public architecture, Chung takes viewers behind the scenes at spaces like the the Seattle Public Library and the Barnes Foundation, while analyzing the work of masters such as Koolhaas with a more approachable, yet investigative tone. It’s all a means to help educate the public about the importance of public spaces.
“We as architects weren’t communicating why it was important,” he says. “I was going to write a white paper, and thought, who’s going to read that? I sort of said I’ll do a TV show on a lark.”
