‘Dr. Chau Chak wing building’ at University of Technology, Sydney, designed by Frank Gehry is contrived to look like it has been damaged, and yet still stands. Gehry is an architect whose crazy curves are his calling card. The intriguing asymmetrical facade and the building’s design is described by the university as symbolic of ‘innovative thinking and encourages interdisciplinary collaboration and the cross-pollination of ideas.’
The building will have two distinct external facades, one composed of undulating brick, referencing the sandstone and the dignity of Sydney’s urban brick heritage, and the other of large, angled sheets of glass to fracture and mirror the image of surrounding buildings. The official opening is expected in February 2015

It is a pure natural art and a spectacular sight where blue, white, turquoise and black icebergs shift and creak about in an icy dance. The icebergs are 1,000-year-old chunks of the retreating Oraefajokull glacier that have broken off and are floating out to sea. The lagoon is enormous and has provided the backdrop for many major  films and programs including ‘Batman Begins’ and most recently ‘Game of Thrones.’
