Wanna learn to build like a superhero? Then join Frank Gehry “in the classroom” as he takes over the online education platform MasterClass (established in 2015, the San Francisco-based company was founded on the idea that everyone should have “access to genius.”). The award-winning architect will teach his first ever online class in the Spring of 2017.
Frank Gehry, the legendary architect, is best known for his trailblazing, modern structures, and pioneering vision for what architecture can and should achieve. His designs – including the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Guggenheim in New York, the Dancing House in Prague, and 8 Spruce Street in New York – have reshaped our cities’ skylines, and the imaginations of artists and designers around the world.
The renowned architect has been awarded with several honors for his work including the Pritzker Architecture Prize and most recently the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
“I have tried to give the students insight into my process – how and why I did things. I hope this gives them the wings to explore and the courage to create their own language,” said Frank Gehry, MasterClass instructor.
In his first-ever MasterClass, Frank Gehry “will share his unconventional philosophy on design and architecture. Students will be invited into Gehry’s never-before-seen model archive for a peek into his creative process. In the class, Gehry will use case studies, progressive models, and storytelling to illuminate the universal lessons learned during his 50+ year career as an artist and architect.”
