Dezeen Wire: American architect Frank Gehry has said that "people are asking good questions" about his divisive design for a memorial to America's 34th president, Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The proposal features large metal tapestries hung from 80-foot-tall columns and set in a landscaped park. At a presentation to fellow architects at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington on Tuesday evening, Gehry insisted that concerns voiced by the public and Eisenhower's grandchildren about the concept and scale of the project would be taken on board ahead of a planning application on 1 December - The Associated Press
