Frank Gehry: On Line

Princeton & New Haven: Princeton University Art Museum & Yale University Press, 2008.
First Edition. Paperback.

Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Princeton University Art Museum October 2008 to January 2009.

An in-depth analysis of Frank Gehry’s drawings during the two decades since computer generated design began to dominate architectural practice. Esther da Costa Meyer analyzes his idiosyncratic style, his inspiration in the art of the past and of the present, and his contributions to the art of architectural draftsmanship.

Da Costa Meyer argues that Gehry's sketches are only the first link in a long chain that passes through numerous models and computer renderings until the building is finally completed. She notes, however, that these whimsical works powerfully express Gehry's critique of the dogmatic strains of modernism prevalent when he began his career and his own attempts to bring humor, emotion, and drama back to architecture.
