Frank Gehry - Design Process

Frank Gehry -Canadian-American architect based in Los Angeles, California.



Much of Gehry's work falls within the style of Deconstructivism. Deconstructivism, also known as DeCon Architecture, is often referred to as post-structuralist in nature for its ability to go beyond current modalities of structural definition. (wiki)

Gehry’s style at times seems unfinished or even crude

Gehry has lent his imaginative designs to a number of products outside the field of architecture, including the Wyborovka Vodka bottle, a wristwatch for Fossil, jewelry

Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis

w Guggenheim Museum Bilbao , Bilbao Spain

The Dancing House in Prague

Marqués de Riscal Vineyard Hotel, Elciego, Spain




Walt Disney Concert Hall - Los Angeles



















Gehry and his research and technology team changed the way his practice approached design. Traditional paper based ways of documenting and delivering architectural projects could not capture Gehry's innovative designs. Gehry built a team of technologists and practitioners which initiated new ways of thinking about architecture and building, using advanced 3D aerospace technologies to design, document and go directly from design to construction without intermediate paper documentation. In parallel, Gehry’s practice pursed innovations to project delivery to establish more collaborative project teams, conducting practice through integrated 3D project data.

Gehry Partners and Gehry Technologies were recognized for pushing the boundaries of construction and engineering technology and creating some of the world’s most recognizable architecture by leveraging software and computer animated design.

Digital Project is a computer-aided design (CAD) software application based on CATIA V5 and developed by Gehry Technologies, a technology company owned by the architect Frank Gehry. Among the changes made by Gehry Technologies to CATIA is a new visual interface suitable for architecture work.[1]




Digital Project a CATIA-based building information modeling (BIM) system. A platform which combines Dassault Systemes' solutions and dedicated software developed by Gehry Technologies specifically for building industry systems, Digital Project generates a single digital model which can be accessed and modified by all teams participating in the same building projects.
