Hide Out House in Los Angeles

Acclaimed Taiwanese artist James Jean lives and works inside a beautiful contemporary space called “Hide Out” that is located close to Little Osaka in Los Angeles, California. Dan Brunn Architecture redesigned the house, which was originally created by Frank Gehry back in the 1970s. The minimalist abode features a large metal pivot door, wooden stairs, a spacious living room and a kitchen, as well as a library that draws design cues from a traditional Japanese tea room.

Pavilion of Photography in Château la Coste

Château la Coste is a vineyard in the south of France that, in addition to its wine-making program, includes major works of contemporary art and architecture across its 500 acre campus. Joining Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry, and Jean Nouvel, Renzo Piano is the latest Pritzker laureate to complete a structure for the ever-expanding complex. The ‘Pavilion of Photography’ forms a exhibition venue buried six meters below ground.

Surrounded by grapevines, the RPBW-designed building seeks to display art and preserve Château la Coste’s wine supplies. the sunken 285 square meter structure uses exposed concrete for the retaining and exhibition walls, a material choice that contrasts the glazed façades and roof canopy. ‘The partly buried building highlights the roof covered with a sail fastened to thin metal arches,’ explains the architects. ‘these arches echo the graphical layout of the grapevines, enabling to integrate the sail into the vineyard.

Imagine a giant glass dome encasing midtown Manhattan, or a self-contained “city of the future” on Ellis Island. In Never Built New York, the Queens Museum invites you to explore the New York City that could have been. 

The exhibition will bring to life two hundred years of unrealized urban design projects from the likes of Buckminster Fuller, I.M. Pei, Frank Lloyd Wright, Frank Gehry — whose vision for the Guggenheim Museum is seen above — and more. 

Support the project to step into an alternate reality of NYC here.
