Gehry Hearts Asia

Frank Gehry’s first residential project in Asia, a twisty residential tower called Opus Hong Kong, is complete. Total project cost for the 12-story, 12-apartment building? A mere $27,000 a square foot, according to Swire CEO Martin Cubbon. “I would just quit everything and come and just work for them forever,” said Gehry on a recent press blitz in Hong Kong, where he praised the “interest and respect” he was afforded.

    Looking at this image I was irritated with the form/expression/cost. But studying other images and the typical floor plan I became quite impressed. It has a certain warmth and humanistic grace lacking in many expressionist forms. A bit over the top maybe, but I’m probably just jealuous I can’t live there.
