Fake Gehry

This is the Cinematheque Francaise a Frank Gehry building. Whats is wrong with it? well when I first saw it I couldn't believe that t was his. I had this preconceived notion that all of Gehry's building have to be in Titanium or some sort of Metal.

The more I looked I at the more sense it made to me. Here he is incorporating the Old with the new and still conserving Gehry's use of movement. The use of the Lime stone hints at Renaissance materiality, the metal is a modern material well used by him and the Movement is Gehry's signature.
