Gehry Rules The World

Is there a major urban project that this guy is NOT working on?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Frank Gehry has been selected to design LA's $1.8 billion Grand Avenue redevelopment project adjacent to his iconic Disney Concert Hall. Plans will include a 40+ story tower across from the hall as well as restaurants, retail space, hotels and apartments. Gehry was selected after the developers considered several other firms, including Pritzker winner Thom Mayne's Morphosis.

And in related news, the rich continue to get richer.

  • The Los Angeles Times' issued today a "call for a new round of brainstorming about what to do with the 16-acre park that will be the Grand Avenue project's centerpiece." The Norman Lear Center, based at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California, will receive all submissions from the public and post the best to their web site, www.grandintervention.org.
