Frank Owen Gehry, CC (born at February 28, 1929) is a Canadian-American Pritzker Prize-winning architect based in Los Angeles, California. His buildings, including his private residence, have become tourist attractions and many customers seek Gehry’s services as a badge of distinction. His works were by far the most often cited as being among the most important works of contemporary architecture in the 2010 World Architecture Survey, which led Vanity Fair to label him as “the most important architect of our age”.

Gehry’s best-known works include the titanium-covered Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain; Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles; Experience Music Project in Seattle; Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis; Dancing House in Prague and the MARTa Museum in Herford, Germany. But it was his private residence in Santa Monica, California, which jump-started his career, lifting it from the status of “paper architecture” – a phenomenon that many famous architects have experienced in their formative decades through experimentation almost exclusively on paper before receiving their first major commission in later years.

There is a huge Titanic museum in a little town called Branson in US. As amazing of a tourist attraction it already is, this museum holds a few surprises for its visitors. The coolest thing about the tour is that every tourist visitor is assigned a passenger when they start the tour. They learn all about the person and then when the tour is over, they finally learn whether or not the passenger survived the tragical shipwreck of the Titanic or not.

13 Buildings That Seemingly Could Collapse In A Second

Designing building is a complex job that architects perform in order to provide us with the beauty, simplicity and functionality we expect in modern times. Sometimes, during their endeavors, architects stray away from the concepts we are used to in modern architecture and create unbelievable buildings that seemingly could collapse in a second. What makes them design such funny buildings? Is it to express rebellion to simple shapes that are forced today in construction? Or maybe they try to attract more attention to their work? Maybe the answer is that they construct funny buildings out of sheer boredom…Whatever the truth is, the result is astonishing, amazing and in one word grotesque creations of modern world architecture that are tourist attractions of some of the largest cities around the world.
