Involving the industry: Gehry's use of ‘Request for Proposals’ packages

A simple and now standardised method of project description linking architectural ideas to technical requirements enables sub-contractors to develop their proposals around their own proprietary technologies.
Frank O. Gehry and Associates' (FOG/A) sculptural approach to building form is widely known.
