Frank Gehry Makes It Right
New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward rebuilding effort, Make It Right, has a lot star power associated with it, including Los Angeles architect Frank Gehry.
The cement siding (painted Teacup Rose on one half, Lily Lilac on the other) is decay resistant, low maintenance, and made of recycled materials.
Gehry stated, “I wanted to make a house that I would like to live in and one that responded to the history, vernacular and climate of New Orleans. I love the colors that the homeowner chose. I could not have done it better.”
