The Gehry Residence in Santa Monica, CA has been granted the AIA’s coveted Twenty-five Year Award. In 1978, Gehry transformed the modest frame bungalow with angled forms of plywood, corrugated metal and chain-link mesh, radical interventions within its leafy, residential surroundings. The house was a precursor of Deconstructivist architecture that came to the forefront in the 1980s and 1990s, as well as a the architect’s own exuberant formal inventions at the Bilbao Guggenheim and elsewhere.
