The famed Frank Gehry will teach his first online class this spring on the platform MasterClass.

The 88-year-old, Los Angeles-based architect known for such structures as the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Dancing House in Prague and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, will be letting students in on some tricks of the trade for just $90.

“I’m just telling you how I did it and why I did it,” Gehry says in the two-minute class trailer that peeks inside his model archive. “When you build a building—any building—start with the simple block model to see where that goes.”

The course, which is already taking pre-enrollment, will come equipped with more than 15 video lessons and a downloadable workbook with lesson recaps and assignments.

The 88-year-old, Los Angeles-based architect known for such structures as the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles will be letting students in on some tricks of the trade for just $90.

Gehry will also critique some student work during virtual “office hours.” The class is aimed at amateurs, Gehry fans or professionals just looking to brush up on their skills.

“Most of our cities are built with faceless glass only for economies and not for humanities,” Gehry continues in the video. “Whatever you do, promise me that every project you make or design, you’ll take the risk of doing something for humanity.”
