Frank O. Gehry established his practice in Los Angeles, California, in 1962. The Gehry partnership — Gehry Partners, LLP — was formed in 2002 and currently supports a staff of 150 people engaged in the design, documentation, and construction administration for significant and complex structures around the world, including museums, concert halls, entertainment, retail, housing, educational, and mixed-use.

Every project undertaken by Gehry Partners is designed personally and directly by Frank O. Gehry. All of the resources of the firm and the extensive experience of the firm’s partners are available to assist in the design effort and to carry this effort forward through technical development and construction administration.

The firm is unique, based on their emphasis on using 3D modeling and software — CATIA, Digital Project, Revit, and physical modeling — to thoroughly document designs and to rationalize the bidding, fabrication, and construction processes. (CATIA is a sophisticated 3D computer modeling program, originally created for use in the aerospace industry.)
