Each project, I suffer like I’m starting over again in life. There’s a lot of healthy insecurity that fuels this stuff.Frank Gehry
For me, every day is a new thing. I approach each project with a new insecurity, almost like the first project I ever did. And I get the sweats. I go in and start working, I’m not sure where I’m going. If I knew where I was going I wouldn’t do it.Frank Gehry
Well, I’ve always just – I’ve never really gone out looking for work. I always waited for it to sort of hit me on the head.Frank Gehry
It’s not new that architecture can profoundly affect a place, sometimes transform it. Architecture and any art can transform a person, even save someone.Frank Gehry
I was in Peru and visited a building near Lima built by the Incas. It was low in height, with no windows at all, but all the way in the back there was air movement. And I couldn’t figure out how they’d done it; it was incredible.Frank Gehry
