Frank O. Gehry

USC School of Architecture
Judge Widney Professor

One of the world’s leading architects and a distinguished USC alumnus, Frank Gehry is best known for the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain (1997), the Experience Music Project in Seattle (2000) and Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles (2003). Winner of the National Medal of Arts and the Pritzker Prize, architecture’s highest honor, Gehry has developed a unique vocabulary of rolling metallic forms that treats buildings as sculptural objects. His firm, Gehry Partners LLP, is currently working on the $3 billion Grand Avenue Project in Downtown Los Angeles.
