Frank Gehry

Teaches Design and Architecture

Create the extraordinary

At 19 years old, Frank Gehry was a truck driver taking sculpture classes at night school. His vision for what architecture could accomplish went on to reshape our cities’ skylines, and the imaginations of artists and designers around the world. Now this master builder invites you into his never-before-seen model archive for a look into his creative process.


Watch and learn as Frank teaches his architectural philosophy using case studies, sketches, and models.


A downloadable workbook accompanies the class with lesson recaps and assignments.


Upload videos to get feedback from the class. Frank will also critique select student work.
