Frank Gehry - Lewis Residence

CAD 0.00

This publication presents the Lewis Residence, an unbuilt residential project for Peter B. Lewis in Lyndhurst, Ohio, that evolved over six years from 1989 to 1995 and in the process fundamentally altered Gehry’s architectural practice.

The Lewis Residence house, landscape and surrounding sculptures, were the result of a collaborative exploration of forms and ideas between Frank Gehry, Philip Johnson, and several artists. Between 1989 and 1995 the design of the residence morphed significantly from a regular composition, inspired by the Palladian villa model, into a complex assemblage of individual curved volumes, and finally into fluid and organic forms analogous to other projects developed by Gehry during the same period. The Lewis Residence represents a laboratory of research not only with reference to architectural expression, but also for the innovative use of digital technologies to control the complex organic and zoomorphic forms.

As part of a multiyear project that includes three exhibitions on twenty-five seminal projects, the CCA and Greg Lynn are publishing a series of digital publications recording conversations with key architects. The epubs are heavily illustrated with photos, drawings, renderings, videos, PDFs, and interactive 3D models.
