The latest edition of Dezeen Debate features a pair of skyscrapers designed by Frank Gehry. Subscribe to Dezeen Debate now.
Gehry's The Grand skyscrapers have opened across the street from the architect's famous Walt Disney Concert Hall. The complex in downtown Los Angeles features residences, retail spaces and a hotel.
Both of the towers feature unique L-shaped profiles with cubic sides that are stacked and staggered as they reach their full heights.
However, commenters feel underwhelmed. One commenter referred to Gehry as the "Joe Biden of architecture".
Other stories in this week's newsletter include a cantilevered housing block, a minimal house in Japan and our latest lookbook featuring glass extensions.
