Canadian-born architect Frank Gehry has long incorporated fish-like forms
into his buildings. The fish has several meanings for Gehry. It reminds
him of the carp his grandmother would serve at the Sabbath dinner, and it
was a good shape to test the capabilities of the early software for computer-aided
design. But above all, it serves as a self-imposed reminder to avoid boxy
fish have become grander in Gehry's work over the years, developing from
a sculptural element into large-scale engineering structures.
