Frank Gehry is still a menace

Look into those eyes of evil. Cold, calculated evil…
Most (architecturally nerdy) people know the name Frank Gehry. Sure, he’s the guy who crumples up paper as his inspiration and then sets his team of actual architects to try and figure out how to build it 1000:1 scale.
Notably, the buildings both leak on the inside and start fires on the outside because those shiny curves tend to focus the sun’s vast energy into small points across the street like ants under a magnifying glass. Greeeeeat.
I suspect he’s secretly an evil genius under the guise of architect so he can continue to build giant building /people burning sun-powered lasers without the authorities suspecting anything. “No officer, I had no idea several of my buildings start fires and of course I didn’t notice the first time(s) otherwise the next few wouldn’t feature the same geometry of death.” as he walks away with that little smirk of cunning that all the villains do in the movies. I mean, it’s hard to deny since his own house is equipped with a similar sun-focusing death beam just in case someone caught wind of his secret identity.
Moral of the story: just because you’re famous doesn’t mean you’re good at what you do. Also, maybe learn from the first time(s) one of your buildings does it and don’t do it again. I mean, really. Not too hard.
Moral of the story for whoever the heck gave him a Pritzker: Don’t award stupidity.
Via Inhabitat who I also want to applaud for the hilarious photoshop building laser photos.
