As we reported back in early November, starchitect Frank Gehry is planning to move closer to the sea soon, once he moves his company to a new location in El Segundo. While we told you about most of the details back then, a few more have been released about the building itself, some information about the plans on how the move will take place, and most importantly, a handful of images of the new flashy new building. Here’s a bit:
The 3.53-acre campus consists of two 1950s warehouse buildings, which are being upgraded and expanded. A 50,000-square-foot main building will house Gehry offices and design studios, with Gehry Technologies and archives located within the 19,500-square-foot building next door. A trellis structure of large timber planks arranged in an offset X-shaped pattern links the two buildings, and it will be drawn into both interiors to help define the 24-foot-tall spaces.
