Completed in 2014, the Dr Chau Chak Wing is Gehry’s most recent addition to the world of architecture. The 12-story tower is home to a new business school, part of the University of Technology in Sydney. The organic appearance resembles Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona – yet the building is interspersed with modern elements, such as great glass shards that shatter the smooth flow of the site, geometric rectangular windows that pierce the curvaceous walls, and the textured brickwork that follows the monumental earthy walls. The deconstructivist elements of Gehry’s earlier works still have a place amidst the natural forms of The Dr Chau Chak Wing.
