Located at the center of the German furniture manufacturing
industry, Marta, the latest European Museum by Frank O.
Gehry, opened in December 2004 to universal acclaim. Conceived
as a laboratory for redefining the relationship between art,
design, and industry, this Gehry masterwork houses art
galleries, a library, educational facilities, and conference
and cultural meeting rooms.While the gallery is, for Gehry,
an uncharacteristic neutral white cube, it is wrapped in a
series of bulging curvatures creating a dome that announces
his distinctive architectural signature. This book, which
contains previously unpublished material on the design and
construction of the museum, offers insight into the working
process of arguably the world's most famous architect, and
his ideas about the shifting boundaries between industry,
design, art, and architecture
