Frank Gehry’s First Foray Into Australia

Frank Gehry is making a big splash in Australia this week with the unveiling of his first planned project in the country, a new building for the business school at the University of Technology, Sydney. Though not a gigantic tower, and Gehry himself has told the Australian press that it’s “a small building,” it’s multi-storied and is in his familiar (see: expensive) style of something akin to a crumpled ball of paper in the front (yes, we saw Sketches of Frank Gehry, too) and all slick and modern in the front (he’s quoted as calling it “wrinkly”). Building in Sydney for the first time, a city known the world over largely for a single piece of its architecture, Joern Utzon‘s famous opera house, Gehry told the Sydney Morning Herald what it felt like to come to finally come to Australia and specifically, who he is competing against at age 81: “ghosts.”
