Frank Gehry Wants to be Your Mommy

For the keen cable-news watcher, Frank Gehry was interviewed by Fareed Zakaria on CNN today. He addressed New York by Gehry, claiming his reasoning for the folds on the building is that it evokes the feeling of "when your mother holds you in her arms. It's very basic, it's primitive." He also discussed the Simpsons perpetuated myth that he gets his ideas by just crumpling a piece of paper: "It has haunted me."
