Frank Gehry: An Architecture of Joy explores American architect Gehry's accomplishments since 1990, when he started working with a computer program to develop his signature fluid building style. His principal philosophy holds that architecture should never be too precious, but should express feeling and joy. In this film, follow the construction of Gehry's DG Bank Conference Center in Berlin's Pariser Platz and explore such projects as the Frederick R. Weisman Museum in Minneapolis and the iconic Bilbao Guggenheim.
