Gehry House

Notable Building in Santa Monica

In his creative life before the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Frank Gehry was primarily known as that crazy guy who sculpted houses from chain-link fencing, plywood and corrugated aluminum. A great place to see the ‘early Gehry’ is his 1979 private home, a deconstructivist postmodern collage that architecture critic Paul Heyer called a ‘collision of parts.’ It's a private home, so please look respectfully and keep your distance.
