Gehry Documentary Traces Journey Of 'Vagabond Architect'

He failed his first drawing class: it was perspective, of course...His path, veering into architecture from fine art, helps explain his now trademark qualities: the obsession with shape, the extensive use of new and unconventional materials, and the performative, exhibit-like quality of his structures. Pollack's film deglamourizes the architect's design process."
