Although it may have been "out there" when first built and clearly unique for a residential neighbourhood house, it is nowhere near as different and diistinctive as his more recent works

A Santa Monica residential neighborhood home is an example of this architect's experimentations in his use of conrstruction elements outside the box. The structure does not resemble the others in the area, but that didn't bother me. I saw the current owner arrive carrying groceries...More

Unique and unreal and an indication of the architects mastery earl in his careeer. Nice to walk around the block to visualize the context, or lack of context to its environment. Difficulty is imagining what he was thinking. Perhaps showing the use of alternative materials...More

If you love Gehry, and I mean love Gehry than go to the house, get out of your car and take your photos and leave. It is in a neighborhood and people don't need lines of cars looking at a silly house. It is totally...More

The Gehry House is an interesting visit, especially after seeing the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA, the Spruce St building in New York City; however, not a fan of the additions he made to the house.

while its in a nice residential area, and the house is mildly interesting, had it not been a "gehry" house, you'd simply drive by and say isn't that kind of weird. not special nothing spectacular.

If you are interested in the architecture of Frank Gehry, a trip to the house is definitely worth it. Of course you can only see the exterior of the house, but that is quite interesting. Walk around the corners and stand across the street and...More

Looking at this house by itself, it's an interesting piece of architecture. Interesting angles and features, giant cactus, see thru panels, etc. not what you see elsewhere in this neighborhood as the house definitely does not fit in. But definitely worth a stop to take...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
