Gehry and his Curves

"Why can't we have those curves and arches that express feeling in design? What is wrong with them? Why has everything got to be vertical, straight, unbending, only at right angles - and functional?"-Charles, Prince of Wales

Charles has apparently never seen the buildings of a Mister Frank Gehry. Curves, slants, and lots of motion are all abundant. This photograph is a close up of the Pritzker Pavilion at Millenium Park. As far as public spaces go, it's one of the best I've had the pleasure to experience.
