Mapped: Each Constructing in Los Angeles Designed By Frank Gehry
Starchitect and generally lively type Frank Gehry has worked in Los Angeles for more than 50 years and is still going strong with a handful of big new projects in town. It doesn’t seem to be slowing down, but 50 years in the field has provided more than enough material for a retrospective exhibition. As a companion of LA County Art MuseumIn its exhibition on Gehry and his work (which will run through spring), the museum put together a map of all of Gehry’s designs in the LA area. The architect’s residential, commercial and public buildings are planned, dated and color-coded by category. (Not on the list? The house he “turned down” for the lavish philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad.)
The map rounds out the whole thing with Gehry’s ongoing projects, including Bunker Hill’s giant mixed-use Grand Avenue project, the Children’s Institute, Inc. headquarters in Watts, Santa Monica’s Ocean Avenue project, and the massive 8150 Sunset on the Sunset Strip and the controversial LA River makeover. It’s just the thing to start a Gehry spotting road trip!
