Frank Gehry "OUTSIDE THE BOX" exhibition in Hong Kong

Last year I was able to attend Frank Gehry's first ever comprehensive exhibition of the completed and current works in Hong Kong at ArtisTree, TaiKoo Place.

I only had my little ipod with me to take photos, that is why the photos are so grainy.

This is the IAC building in NYC, facing West Side Highway, near the HighLine

Gehry is building a very upscale residential building in Hong Kong, his first building in Asia.  It is situated on one of those elevated-land-prime-real-estate locations in Hong Kong.  I think the developer may have helped sponsor this exhibition, because ArtisTree is in a building owned by the developer.
Here is the design process:

Massing program models

Conceptual design

There were so many study models

Floor plan study models

Final Model, one unit for each floor, 6,000+ sqft each unit

Really cool section model of the interior

The views you would see from the flat.  Yes, prime real estate location. On top of one of the elevated land
