Frank Gehry

Architect
Gehry Partners

Frank Gehry is one of the most prominent architects of the last century, renowned for his rippling, seemingly shapeless exteriors. He is best-known in New York City for two projects: the IAC Building at 550 West 18th Street and the Beekman Tower at 8 Spruce Street.

The IAC Building houses the headquarters of Barry Dillers InterActiveCorp. Completed in 2007, it is only 10 stories tall, but Gehrys bulbous, beehive-like exterior gives the appearance of a much larger building.

Beekman Tower, marketed sometimes as New York by Gehry, is largerat 76 stories and 870 feet it was the tallest residential building the Western Hemisphere when it opened in February 2011. Developed by Forest City Ratner, it houses 898 luxury rentals and a public elementary school. The New York Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff raved about Gehrys design: Draped over a classical shell, the towers crinkled steel skin is proof that the skyscraper has yet to exhaust itself as an urban art form.

Gehrys eponymous firm was also supposed to design Forest City Ratners enormous Atlantic Yards project in downtown Brooklyn. But, after six years of work and because of cost concerns, Forest City dropped Gehry from the project in June 2009. The move caused controversy as Gehrys presence on the project was a main selling point for its approval by the state.
