Gehry Strikes Again

Frank Gehry has his fans, and his Disney Hall is an impressive building to gaze at in person (I've yet to hear a concert there, the acoustics of the hall are supposed to be nearly flawless).

But what I've seen of his biggest project to date (puff piece on the front page of the LATimes), doesn't fill me with hope (and the LATimes architecture critic seems to agree with me, which means maybe I should rethink things, he's an ass). I don't think this will be a grand addition to Grand Avenue, but you never know, maybe it won't suck.
