Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2008 in London, United Kingdom by Gehry Partners, LLP

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Article source: Gehry Partners, LLP

This temporary pavilion, the 2008 contribution to the Serpentine Gallery’s Pavilion series, is situated beside the museum on the grounds of Kensington Gardens in London.  The 418 square meter pavilion is designed as a wooden timber structure which acts as an urban street connecting the park with the permanent gallery building. Inside the pavilion, glass canopies are hung from the wooden and steel structure to protect the interior space from inclement weather and provide shade on sunny days. The pavilion is much like an amphitheater, designed to serve as a place for live performances of music and art, as well as a setting for visitors to gather and relax.

Beekman Tower (8 Spruce Street) in New York by Frank Gehry

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

8 Spruce Street, originally known as Beekman Tower and currently marketed as New York by Gehry, is a 76-story skyscraper designed by architect Frank Gehry in the New York City borough of Manhattan at 8 Spruce Street, just south of City Hall Plaza and the Brooklyn Bridge.

At 870 feet tall, New York by Gehry is the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere and a singular addition to the iconic Manhattan skyline. For his first residential commission in New York City, master architect Frank Gehry has reinterpreted the design language of the classic Manhattan high-rise with undulating waves of stainless steel that reflect the changing light, transforming the appearance of the building throughout the day. Gehry’s distinctive aesthetic is carried across the interior residential and amenity spaces with custom furnishings and installations.
