True that! It's hard to believe that folks the world over entrust the design of hundreds of millions of dollars in buildings to the gentleman that designed that house. Well, at least he got better since 1978.

IMO, it looks like the set from some crappy John Carpenter movie.

Tsk-tsk -- I believe some Angelenos are missing the point of Gehry's world-famous deconstructed residence; it was play ! Where else but at home can the architect let loose and try out his wildest ideas ? The house was available and affordable but hardly what Gehry wanted to live with and too small for his family to boot (as I recall it). Although he was probably lucky to escape stoning or firebombing by the neighbors (would some of our posters have shown the same restraint ?) the house has served its purpose well -- perhaps as a calling card, certainly as a refreshing and liberating place to come home to.

Better than this, anyway, isn't it ? :roll:

Oh yes, the A. Quincy Jones Barn is great! Unfortunately his first home was lost in the great Bel Air fires of the 1960's.

You are half right. The Steel House that burned was A Quincy Jones' second house. See entry #10). The first Jones House and Studio was just on the MAK tour and is in West Hollywood.

Just watched a great Sundance channel documentary on Eileen Gray, which included the story of her house in France -- named "E-1027'" and listed at #11.-- which apparently fascinated Corbusier.

Hi Moderns-R-us,

You are correct, AQJ's first own home is a small 1939 duplex at 8661 Nash, off of Laurel Canyon. Never been inside.

It is pretty intact other than the alterations Jones made himself after the war.

Thank you. A service to mankind, no less.

I offer a little architecture-watching music: Bach, of course. Here's parts of a letter sent this morning to another LL worthy.

"I've been scoring cheap thrills at used record stores
for quite a while now; you never know what you'll find
for a buck or two or three. Lots of good cantata
recordings (and a few clunkers) and any amount of
excellent performances of various keyboard works, on
various harpsichords and the occasional organ (rich
stuff -- a little goes a long way). The young Anthony
Newman acquitted himself well c. 1968-70 on pedal
harpsichord AND organ (Columbia MS 7309).

"If you haven't, try Helma Elsner's Chromatic Fantasy
and Fugue, John Gibbons's Prelude and Fugue in a minor
(etc), Martin Gallings's Two- and Three-Part
Inventions, and Gustave Leonhardt's Art of Fugue.
Then, finish off with La Landowska herself, and the
Well-Tempered You-Know-What. There's years of deep
and lasting satisfaction here. . .

"I have no idea how much of this has been made
available on CD. Most of it, I hope. I haven't looked
at a Schwann catalog in quite a while. I'm still
listening to vinyl. I can give you numbers for the
above if you like. (I'd love to find that Leonhardt;
borrowed from the library and put on a cassette, given
to a friend. Bach Guild HM 18/19 or BG-532/3. It
will destroy you.)"

An acquired taste, perhaps, the harpsichord; many know Bach via Glenn Gould and his piano. Step up to the original, I say; some of these tinklers are as rich as an organ -- Wanda Lansowska's old Pleyel in particular.

One of the above blogs brought to my attention that we are only representing 3/5 of the Harvard Five (Johnson, Breuer and Noyes) in the top 50. The following additions will rectify this oversight on our part by adding the additional 2/5.

52) John M. Johansen – Johansen House I - New Canaan, CN – 1949-1952

53) Landis Gore – Gore House - New Canaan, CN - 1948

The above photos are from a great website honoring Landis Gore, whose career was interupted by polio.

By the way here is a brief article on the Harvard Five.

Wow -- another "hidden gem" is brought to light. I was blissfully unaware of Landis Gores's work until now. Unmistakable Wright cues married to Harvard classicism makes for a remarkable domestic architecture. Note absence of the influence in his earliest built work. The rough-but-tailored masonry and pierced overhangs are the most prominent clues to the "infection." Really handsome stuff. "How to use a generous budget in a modest way." McMansion builders take note. Nice handling of front-yard parking in the Virginia residence -- a grand ranch ?

Thanks for the treat ! SDR

Bradley bungalow, Woods Hole, MA, 1912 -- Purcell, Feick & Elmslie

House for All Seasons -- Landis Gores

The newer house seems to be a showcase for some still-to-be-widely-adopted active and passive climate control, according to the section diagram presented. When will we learn ?
