Too much text v.s. actual built work in my opinion.
Diane C. Donovan
Five of Gehry's works: the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, Spain, the Norton House in Venice Beach, Calif., the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Experience Music Project in Seattle and The New Customhouse, in Dusseldorf, Germany are shown here.
The pop-ups are accompanied by several colorful photos, a history of each building, and rich design and construction details. The text traces Gehry's career as each project establishes its own identity. Anyone interested in architectural details or knowing more about the architect will find this book helpful.
But the pop-ups seem to get in the way. Several of them snagged on their various pieces and had to be untangled to stand upright. More important, they just didn't seem all that enlightening. Part of the problem may be that the sites are complex: they aren't just a matter of a tower or a building with the usual corners. Most of the multiple pieces and angles of Gehry's works just don't seem to work well in this presentation, except for a couple of smaller pop-ups accompanying the main artwork depicting Experience Music Project.

My mom collects pop up books. This is no Robert Sabuda in that some of the pop ups stuck and didn't resold properly. Read morePublished on February 1, 2013 by CityMominWoods
