Frank Gehry in Sydney


Frank Gehry is a world renown architect who has created a wonderful building in Sydney.  It is called the Dr Chau Chak wing of the UTS  business school.  Dr Chau Chak donated 20 million dollars to help create this 180 million dollar building, thus the name.
Frank Gehry is a Canadian born architect who resides in the US and has designed some of the world's most exciting buildings.  

     Sydney Urban sketchers visited this marvel on Saturday.  When drawing the sketch above, a woman stopped to talk and check it out.  She is a lecturer who has an office in the building and  said that she loved to come to work because of this place.

Here are some of other Gehry buildings.

This is the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao in Spain.  It is said that this building has really helped to turn around the economy of this city.

This is called the Dancing House in Prague.

This is the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA.

This is a tower in Lower Manhattan, 8 Spruce St.

Sydney is very lucky to be able to say that we have a Frank Gehry piece of architecture too.
