Catch this award winning documentary on WVIZ about world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, dessigner of the exceptional Peter B. Lewis Building of the Weatherhead School of Business at Case University... Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 9pm. About the documentary...

Frank Gehry is that rare kind of architect who has garnered both critical acclaim and popular recognition. His designs dramatically blur the line between art and architecture; his sketches and models are the basis for dynamic structures and unpredictable interiors. Oscar-winner Sydney Pollack's first feature documentary, selected for the Cannes Film Festival, includes observations by Disney CEO Michael Eisner, musician Bob Geldof, actor Dennis Hopper, architect Phillip Johnson, artist Julian Schnabel and Gehry's psychiatrist.

Peter B. Lewis (benefactor of Gehry's Case Western Reserve University building and an important, but never-built, residential design) also appears in the film.
