Gehry Plays House

Despite his worldwide fame and fancy commissions for Hobbit supercenters, Frank Gehry has found the time to design an avant-garde playhouse for the precocious children of Silicon Valley. This Saturday, June 6, a bright pink playhouse designed by Gehry will go on auction at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto as part of a fund-raiser for housing organization Rebuilding Together. Titled "Tours en l'Air" (French for "Facebook paid me to do this"), Gehry's playhouse deconstructs the form of a princess castle, all the while mocking our desire for a more familiar form with its aggressively pink hue.
