Frank Gehry sees himself as an artist first, and then as an architect, working much as an artist would. He has translated the vocabulary of contemporary art into an architectural language of his own, disobeying the rules of his profession and questioning its historic conventions. Like Rauschenberg, Johns, and Warhol, he has introduced “bad taste” into his concepts, while keeping himself outside of the contemporary dialogue between modernism and post-modernism. His stature in architecture today (though not his work) has been compared to that of the great American original Frank Lloyd Wright.
