A series of interviews conducted by Sydney Pollack traces the exciting life of the celebrated Canadian architect.

Taking its cue from Gehry’s original drawings for his most important projects, the film explores the journey of transforming these abstract sketches, first into three-dimensional matrix models, often made simply from cardboard and tape, then into complete buildings made of glass and titanium, concrete and steel, wood and stone.
