Frank Gehry: “You don?t see what?s going on, until all of a sudden, there it is.” - architecture and design

Frank Gehry: “You don?t see what?s going on, until all of a sudden, there it is.”

CA: When the renderings first came out for this, nine years ago, the big talk was about how this was extremely tall for Toronto. Now, there?s several towers that are similar in height, and lots more on the boards.
FG: And so, if we could have gotten together and talked about it, we could have done a better job. Instead of everybod...
