FRANK GEHRY: Art + Architecture, live from the AGO - 2
Frank Gehry is about to speak over the din of the jackhammers that, apparently, cannot stop in spite of the press conference.

Gehry is wearing a jacket in support of a certain Canadian hockey star currently under intense media scrutiny ;)

He's talking about how some critics are saying that this building is not really a Gehry. Not true... "I designed it, honestly."

He did not realize he was going to speak so this is somewhat extemporaneous. He's talking about the design of hockey arenas and poorly designed ones affect people's enjoyment - design matters.

Now a trip down memory lane — the days when he was a kid playing hockey in Grange Park.
