March 30, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Please RSVP to receive the webinar link on the day of the program:
Pritzker Prize–winner Frank Gehry is widely considered one of the world’s most important living architects. Much of the genius of Gehry can be found in his drawings, works of art in their own right, whose progressions from paper architecture to built poststructuralist reality have changed our own visual landscape forever.
Written by architecture scholar Jean-Louis Cohen in direct collaboration with the architect, this comprehensive multivolume publication will contain exhaustive documentation of each of Gehry’s projects. Each volume of the catalogue will include insightful texts and high-quality images of individual works and preparatory drawings, along with provenance information, exhibition history, and bibliographic information.
Trained as an architect and a historian, Jean-Louis Cohen holds since 1994 the Sheldon H. Solow Chair for the History of Architecture at New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts. He has published more than thirty books, including: Building a New New World: Amerikanizm in Russian Architecture (2020), Frank Gehry: Catalogue Raisonné of the Drawings; Volume One, 1954–1978 (2020), Le Corbusier: The Built Work (2018), France, Modern Architectures in History (2015), Le Corbusier: an Atlas of Modern Landscapes (2013), The Future of Architecture. Since 1889 (2012), Architecture in Uniform (2011), and Le Corbusier and the Mystique of the USSR (1992).
Among the exhibitions he has curated are the centennial show “L’aventure Le Corbusier,” at the Centre Pompidou (1987); “Architecture in Uniform,” and “Building a New New World: Amerikanizm in Russian Architecture,” at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (2011 and 2019); “Le Corbusier: an Atlas of Modern Landscapes,” at the Museum of Modern Art (2007). He received in 2014 the special mention of the jury for his French pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
