Quotes by: Frank Gehry

<<123>>
I approach each project with a new insecurity, almost like the first project I ever did, and I get the sweats, I go in and start working, I'm not sure where I'm going.
Frank Gehry
Bilbao opened in 1997. It was only ten years later that I was asked to do another museum. A lot of other people got work because of Bilbao.
Frank Gehry
The best advice I've received is to be yourself. The best artists do that.
Frank Gehry
A lot of people don't get it, but I design from the inside out so that the finished product looks inevitable somehow. I think it's important to create spaces that people like to be in, that are humanistic.
Frank Gehry
The game is if the orchestra can hear each other, they play better. If they play better and there's a tangible feeling between the orchestra and the audience, if they feel each other, the audience responds and the orchestra feels it.
Frank Gehry
I think people care. If not, why do so many people spend money going on vacations to see architecture? They go to the Parthenon, to Chartres, to the Sydney Opera House. They go to Bilbao... Something compels them, and yet we live surrounded by everything but great architecture.
Frank Gehry
Most of our cities built since the war are bland. They're modernist, they're cold, and now architects want to go back to that.
Frank Gehry
I think my attitudes about the past are very traditional. You can't ignore history; you can't escape it even if you want to. You might as well know where you come from, and you might as well know that everything has been done in some shape or form.
Frank Gehry
Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.
Frank Gehry
I refuse to work unless I get paid, so I don't get a lot of work sometimes.
Frank Gehry
This neo-minimalism super cold stuff is weird to me. I need a place where I can come home and take my shoes off.
Frank Gehry
For me, every day is a new thing. I approach each project with a new insecurity, almost like the first project I ever did. And I get the sweats. I go in and start working, I'm not sure where I'm going. If I knew where I was going I wouldn't do it.
Frank Gehry
I would like to make a building as intellectually driven as it is sculptural and as positive as it would be acceptable to hope.
Frank Gehry
An architect is given a program, budget, place, and schedule. Sometimes the end product rises to art - or at least people call it that.
Frank Gehry
There are people who design buildings that are not technically and financially good, and there are those who do. Two categories - simple.
Frank Gehry
Architecture has always been a very idealistic profession. It's about making the world a better place, and it works over the generations because people go on vacation and they look for it.
Frank Gehry
There are a lot of questions about whether architecture is art. The people who ask that think pretty tract houses are architecture. But that doesn't hold up.
Frank Gehry
There is stuff I would have liked to have done. But there are no sour grapes.
Frank Gehry
Democracy, obviously, is something we don't want to give up, but it does create chaos. It means the guy next door can do what he wants, and it creates a collision of thinking. In cities, that means people build whatever they want.
Frank Gehry
The fact is I'm an opportunist. I'll take materials around me, materials on my table, and work with them as I'm searching for an idea that works.
Frank Gehry
It's not new that architecture can profoundly affect a place, sometimes transform it. Architecture and any art can transform a person, even save someone.
Frank Gehry
