Eighty-one-year-old Frank Gehry has rightfully earned his label as “the most important architect of our age,” as was voted in the 2010 World Architect Survey.

I had the honor of meeting Gehry in early 2009 and got to ask him questions on his views on the future of architecture and 3D as an innovation tool.

And today I’m proud to share with you another Gehry video, although much prettier and professional than mine, where Gehry talks specifically about how Dassault Systèmes CATIA software is key to his architectural realizations.

Some of my favorite quotes include:

“We’ve got powers that architects don’t usually have.”


“You can’t do it without any other software out there.”

So here’s your chance to hear from the master himself some of his secrets . . . and enjoy the beautiful footage.

Many thanks to Elodie and Karin for allowing me to put this video extract onto our YouTube channel.  The Gehry video is part of an online video-cube presentation on the Dassault Systèmes group.  It’s worth a tour, so please check it out when you have a chance.

Meanwhile I’ll get back with you soon with other of my favorite extracts.

And BTW . . . what do you think?

    I agree, and (I admit)even after watching it several times, it still has an effect.
