Dancing House by Frank Gehry

Contemporary architect Frank Gehry’s work usually makes for a recognizable character in a city skyline. His buildings frequently feature unusual materials bent and warped in unusual ways to create enclosure. Metals are often crumpled as if they were pieces of paper to create a dynamic building that doubles as sculpture.

In our latest infographic, My Modern Met explores some of Gehry’s most famous projects—including the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California and Dancing House in Prague. Though both of these projects exhibit the architect’s distinct postmodern style, they are completely different works. Gehry uses his recognizable design aesthetic to create a huge variety of work and a wide range of civic landmarks.
