    Eighty-five years old and still busy designing and building, Frank Gehry is probably the most iconic architect around today. The film follows him as he works on the UTS Business School in Sydney, his first building in Australia. It's a wonderful and balanced portrait of a captivating architect. As Zaha Hadid says in the film: “You can't get all that built by being a teddy bear all the time.” His architecture blends fantasy and high-end ICT with pure craftsmanship.

    A film to reinforce your belief in architecture.

    Gehry's Vertigo offers a rare and vertiginous trip along the rooftops of the Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao. Through the portrait of the climbing team in charge of cleaning the glass, their ascensions, techniques and difficulties, this film observes the complexity and virtuosity of Frank Gehry's architecture.
