Not a very typical Gehry-building, but one of the most beautiful in my opinion. The way you photographed this architecture with this arctic colours, it reminds me of a large iceberg.

Hi. Thank you for your comments and favs.
@daniel: I am not a big (or small) fan of most of the better known Gehry's works but I found this one quite interesting.

The reflections and natural angles make this look rather nice and sort of natural indeed, but still cold and a randomly angled -- yes, a bit like an iceberg as Daniel proposes. When it comes to famous modern architects, I am most partial to Eero Saarinen and next perhaps Guenter Behnisch and also Cesar Manrique ... an organic architecture that still places function first whilst looking natural and familiar, evolving both from the classic building traditions of human culture and the ways the hard parts of critters are constructed each to it's purpose. To much of representative modern architecture is about the superlatives and uniqueness first.
