Frank Gehry: “When I came last it was a mess. Looked very precarious, like it might not happen right. You get scared and you wonder, ‘God what are these people going to think?’ I wanna hide under the covers!

You know, I’m not going to get to live here, and stay here. So I’m only going to see it today, and I leave. And maybe I’ll see it three or four more times in my life. For me, it’s like one of my children… and I love it.”
