The Vitra Design Museum, designed by Frank Gehry himself, (realized back in 1989 in Weil am Rhein, Germany) is currently featuring a retrospective of Gehry's work since 1997.  
In the first building realized in Europe by Frank O. Gehry, from October 2, 2010 the Vitra Design Museum is presenting a selection of his most important projects of the last 13 years. The projects in the exhibition Frank O. Gehry since 1997 will be displayed in the form of large, detailed studies and competition models from the Gehry Partners archive. Original drawings by the architect and a multitude of developmental models will offer visitors detailed and readily comprehensible insights into the design process.  -- Vitra

Produced by La Trennale di Milano, the show was conceptualized as a collaboration between Germano Celant and Frank Gehry with Frank Gehry Partners (the starchitec's agency in California).  Have a watch at the preview of the exhibition (below) presented by the curator of the design museum, Jochen Eisenbrand.
