According to this AP story, a pair of local Frank Gehry-designed buildings may be on the way to destruction. (They have no chance to survive make their time.) And no, one of them isn’t the Disney Hall. They are the Santa Monica Place shopping mall, and ‘…a blockish, stucco structure…’ at UCI.
Jeremy Roth, a fourth-year mechanical engineering student, stood in front of the Gehry building on the UC Irvine campus one day this week. “Does this look like an architectural masterpiece to you?” said Roth, 22. “It’s all rusted, the paint’s all messed up. It’s an ugly little building.”
