Gehry swings, part II
MARTa Herford - a Frank Gehry building
On an 8,000 square metre site near Herford's Main Station, between Goebenstraße and the curve of the river Aa, a building project for MARTa Herford is being realised by Canadian star architect Frank Gehry, born in Toronto, Canada (Thank you, Barbera !)
The MARTa Herford complex, which has a wavy steel roof, is being built with bricks that are typical of the region. It has four different building components: a Museum, a Forum, a Centre and a Café, all of which are expressions of the architect's particular sculptural idiom.
