Learning from a Master Architect
17. February 2017
Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry will give an online master class on design and architecture as part of MasterClass's series of "online classes from world-renowned instructors."
A short film from MasterClass gives a taste of Gehry's upcoming class, which will consist of more than fifteen video lessons, a class workbook, and the opportunity to have Gehry critique your work.
Gehry's class is one of about a dozen for MasterClass, a startup that was founded by Aaron Rasmussen and David Rogier; it launched in May 2015 with an acting class by Dustin Hoffman. The $90 classes tend toward the entertainment industry (acting, singing, performing, and directing), though they've also included classes on writing, cooking, and sports. All classes are famous names: Kevin Spacey, Christina Aguilera, Werner Herzog, Gordon Ramsey, and Serena Williams, to name a few, and now Gehry, the first architect in the lot.
We can't help but wonder, if enough people sign up for Gehry's class, which architect will be next to have their own master class?
