Looks very similar to his own house, he designed in the 70's.

It seems recently, he's been moving away from curved metal. Probably a good idea. Was making him look like a one trick pony, whereas, if you look at his work, before the 90's. It was quite varied.

I've tried my best to appreciate what he has done during his career and I'm afraid I have failed.

I set up an interesting gallery of the construction process of this building. It can be found here: www.0lll.com/serpentine

It makes a bit more sense to me after seeing moving pictures, but I'm still not convinced.

Frank Gehry gets prickly: "It's not just plop". Exclusive interview.

I'm sitting opposite Frank Gehry over breakfast in an impossibly pretty sunlit town square in Arles, Provence. He's here to launch the plans for his "Parc des Ateliers" project, described as a cultural Utopia. But I'm staring at a set of squiggles he's just drawn in my notebook, and wondering if I should ask him to sign them. He'd reached for a pen, as architects in conversation do, and started sketching away. "I'm doing these pop-up stores for Bono," he explains. "They're for his Product Red company. I'm really excited by them. They're like pieces of jigsaw."
