Frank Gehry

Frank Gehry, born 1929 in Toronto, Canada, earned a degree in architecture from the University of Southern California before studying urban planning at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design.

1962, he founded the architectural firm Frank Gehry & Associates in Los Angeles. He designed the cardboard furniture series Easy Edges between 1969-72, including The Wiggle Side Chair, in which he brought a new aesthetic dimension to such an everyday material as cardboard.

Over the years, he has taught at several universities, including Harvard and Yale, where he served as Charlotte-Davenport-Professorship of Architecture (1982, 1985, 1987-89) and still teaches.

Gehry has received numerous honorary doctorates from the University of Toronto, the University of Southern California, Yale University, Harvard University, and the University of Edinburgh.
