Frank Gehry turned 80 on Saturday. So happy birthday Mr. Gehry and thanks for:

Giving the Guggenheim Bilbao human scale while still making it astonishing.

Surprising the hell out of us when we first saw your home on 22nd Street in Santa Monica.

Reminding us that wire fencing was cool way back in 1978.

Even thinking that a tar sealed driveway would make a good floor for your kitchen.

Making architectural models to die for.

Keeping on keeping on.
