Gehry Residence

On a short trip to Los Angeles, CA we stopped at a few of Frank Gehry’s works. The first one was the Gehry Residence in Santa Monica, CA that was designed by Gehry in the 70’s. This was Gehry’s residence for many years and is often considered one of the earliest deconstructivist buildings. It is rumored that his neighbors were not happy with the building and in protest, brought their dogs to shit on Gehry’s lawn. Unfortunately, we were there when the thunderstorm tore through the state, but provided a relief from the California drought.
