EMP Museum

To express the vitality of music through the medium of architecture, architect Frank Gehry took an iconic image from the world of music – the electric guitar – and 'deconstructed' it. Early building models were literally constructed of guitar pieces; the finished structure is an undulating form covered in 21,000 stainless steel and painted aluminum shingles.


The various colors and textures of these individually positioned shingles, along with their reflectivity, creates a changing surface which evokes the dynamism of music.
