Frank Gehry: The Wes Anderson of Architecture

Frank Gehry the Wes Anderson of Architecture

I twittered that I was on my way to the Bauhaus exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art and a friend responded that Walter Gropius was the Wes Anderson of architecture. After thinking very long about this prospect I realized that the closest analogy would actually be Frank Gehry, the wonky starchitect known for milking his dying brand long after it was fresh and innovative. This also brings up the close analogy between Gehry and M. Night Shyamalan but I think Anderson wins out since Shyamalan’s work is far too serious.
You might want to queue up some Rolling Stones to accompany this post.
