Built in 1984, Frank Gehry's 'Sketch Foundation Gallery - Air and Space Exhibits' at the California Science Center exemplifies his irreverent, exploded-then-reassembled sensibilities in architecture. Irregular, angular forms break from their implied boundaries and overlap in unexpected, provocative ways, seemingly defying basic precepts of order and structure in building engineering. The Los Angeles building is known for its metal cladding, reminiscent of airplane skin, and for the iconic jet fighter permanently poised as though leaping over the entrance wall.
