- In 1978 Frank Gehry renovated this house that is now a must-see on any architectural student's itinerary. He changed a simple Dutch-gabled cottage into a construction of corrugated metal, chain link, plywood and glass. The neighbors were nonplussed over the new look, but it has since become one of the most talked-about houses in the world. It is a good example of Deconstructionism, stripping a building down to its bare essentials. Today it remains a private residence, but the sidewalk is always free.
