"Frank Gehry turns to Asia for architecture projects as U.S. growth slows"- Bloomberg

Dezeen Wire:
 architect Frank Gehry has confirmed that he has submitted designs for projects in China and India as difficult economic conditions in the US have led to a decline in development - Bloomberg

Gehry has stated that he would prefer to work on projects in California or New York to avoid having to travel but is being forced to look elsewhere in order to procure work for the 100 employees at his Los Angeles office.

It has been a turbulent month for Gehry, with the development of his new Guggenheim museum in Abu Dhabi currently on hold due to financial cutbacks and his design for the Eisenhower Memorial in Washington being criticised, while he has also founded a strategic alliance of top architects to confront inefficiency in the building sector.
