MY HERO recommends this book to readers of all age groups.

This book, chronicling the first major Gehry retrospective in 15 years, highlights the imaginative, often shocking designs that have made the Pritzker Prize-winning Gehry into an icon of contemporary architecture. Of course Gehry's most famous work -- the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain -- is covered, but this massive book showcases the entire spectrum of Gehry's designs. In addition to breathtaking photographs of the building projects, reproductions of Gehry's wonderful sketches are included, giving the reader a hint of the wild imagination that lurks behind the precision of the blueprints and scale models.
