Frank Gehry: The Musical

Dancing architectural models channel “West Side Story” as a group of artists pay homage to the architect in an unusual exhibition.

"Depending on the time you enter the massive space, you may see eight models of Gehry’s major works—the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, Facebook’s West Campus Building, and an unrealized proposal for the National Art Museum of China, among them—engaged in a kind of ballet. Thanks to the wheels attached to the tables on which the models sit and to the rhythmic labor of a few Arles-based human handlers, the constructions have been moving since April in a dance imagined by Tino Seghal, an artist celebrated for orchestrating “constructed situations” that often involve performers and unfold over time. Their movements are set to a score by venerable French composer Pierre Boulez. Seghal gave the handlers a list of movements, but they decide which to put in motion and when. At one point, on a recent visit, as the Guggenheim Bilbao and the Disney Concert Hall came rushing together, they stopped just short of collision to twirl away in separate directions, bringing to mind a Sharks-versus-Jets situation from “West Side Story.”

a compact volume measuring 3.1 meters by 5.8 meters that freely rests on the ground with a stern raised on top of a huge boulder. the entry features a flat platform opened by a large glassed-in surface with enough headroom for one occupant to stand. the remaining room gradually rises towards another opening which faces the treetops. these windows can be closed by large shutters, one by a pulley and another by a hand-operated winch. each step of the interior is meant to provide the client with places for leisure and relaxation while concealing hidden storage space underneath. simultaneously, turning one of the benches over creates another double bed for the user.
