From the architect. Photographer Emilio Collavino recently shared these photographs of Frank Gehry's New World Center in Miami, Florida. Part of the New World Symphony America's Orchestral Academy, the music education and performance facility is the first puporse-built home for the New World Symphony founded by artistic director Michael Tilson Thomas. The New World Center opened its doors to the public in January of this year.

The rectangle shaped white building expresses Gehry’s well known bends and folds within its interior – glimpses of which are visible through the main entrance east facade 80 foot high glass curtain wall.

He does seem to be moving away from the total free form of his past works. But unfortunately it's now a mere appendix pasted on a block. Really, and this is great how? And I agree with Dan's reply. Can't state it any better.

I'm happy about how the whole building isn't curving off into nowhere like what he usually does to them. The little flourishes of the arbitrary forms have a bit more character than seeing the whole thing spreading out his usual deformed metal-clad cakes. I still hate how irresponsible it is to build out of context.

THE BUILDING IS SPECTACULAR AND IT FITS WITHIN THE URBAN FABRIC OF WHAT IS MIAMI BEACH, ITS SCALE AND MOST OF ALL THE ABILITY TO ENJOY A CONCERT FREE OF CHARGE BEING PROJECTED ON THE OUTDOOR SCREENS.

I like th esmiley face window :)

dan · May 20, 2011

Im trying to find something interesting about this building, but i just cant. Ghery had his day along time ago, he really needs either shake off his one trick pony or just give up. The world has moved on we dont need your pretentiousness any more Frankie!

FRM · May 21, 2011 12:41 AM

I suspect you're not able to grasp his work now or his accomplishments from the past, let alone spell his name correctly.

Pedro · May 20, 2011

Disgusting as usual. That is so lazy of him. Boring compared to what he does. What is this 1980? I see better from the 1st years.

Pablo Noel · May 20, 2011

Incredible!
