"The Aerospace Museum and Theater are the beginning of a long term master plan to develop an Air and Space Museum complex. The client asked that the museum building be designed as an exhibit to focus attention on the Aerospace Museum complex. Frank Gehry responded by developing the building as a set of sculptural objects when viewed from the exterior and as one continuous space from the interior."
