Ray and Maria Stata Center, Massachusetts Institute of Technology by Frank Gehry

The Architect and the Masterpiece

Frank Gehry is one of the embodiments of the deconstructive-style architect. His vision through design inspires many architects to create beyond the expectation, including me. He is the mastermind of some state-of-the-art architecture magnum opus such as Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles, and Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris. Another creation that shows his typical deconstructivism is Ray and Maria Stata Center in Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which I took some pictures of and wrote my thought about as my admiration for this artwork.
