Architect, Gehry Partners
Gehry may be 93, but he’s still making an impact. Projects under construction include the Facebook Campus in Menlo Park, the downtown-based Grand Avenue Project, the Children’s Institute Inc. in Watts and a new headquarters for Warner Media in Burbank. The Pritzker Prize-winning architect formed his current architectural partnership, Gehry Partners, in 2001. He is known for his unconventional designs, many of which use new materials and are often described as sculptural rather than structural. He designs and directs each project, which include academic, commercial, museum, performance and residential spaces.
