These Frank Gehry constructions are just a few examples of the Pritzker Prize-winning architect's astounding creations.

Before becoming a famous actor, Brad Pitt apprenticed with Frank Gehry who instilled in Pitt a deep fondness and appreciation for architecture. Pitt's Make it Right campaign, an organization that builds houses for individuals affected by Hurricane Katrina, has had Gehry design amazing homes for disaster victims.

Frank Gehry's designs are constantly pushing boundaries in regards to what architecture can entail. His designs have gone on to influence massive buildings all around the world, from corporate structures to personal abodes. The famous architect has even made sure that children are not forgotten where structures are concerned. Gehry's playground design for Battery Park in New York City demonstrates that fun, architecture and play can go hand in hand.
