Frank O. Gehry (b. 1929) designed the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao building with CATIA, a computer software that originated in the aerospace industry that had never before been used by an architect.

Another unconventional technique of the mid-1990s construction, used by Gehry for the first time in this building, was titanium cladding. The Museum is covered with nearly 33,000 titanium plates.

In addition to buildings, Gehry also designs objects, like the trophy of the World Cup of Hockey, pieces of furniture like his corrugated cardboard chairs, and even a hat for singer Lady Gaga. What object would you like to design? Why?
