    Abstract

    This paper reviews ‘Frank Gehry, architect: Designs for Museums’: the worldwide touring exhibition, first exhibited at the Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis, which was hosted by the Millennium Court Arts Centre in Portadown played host to this exhibition in 2006 as it’s only European venue.The exhibition presents four of Gehry’s completed museum projects and six still under construction. Divided into four sections - Contexts for Museums, Complex Exteriors, Galleries with Character and Technology – the exhibition addresses the journey undertaken by Gehry in his design process. Critics of Gehry’s work often comment upon the disregard of the surrounding buildings within his designs. The exhibition addresses this issue, drawing attention to the care that Gehry takes when designing buildings to complement the surroundings, subtly including references to both man-made and natural elements.
