Before He Was A Starchitect.... (The Horrible Truth)

The buildings that a young(er) Frank Gehry designed are being recognized as absolute shit by communities afflicted by the eyesores. The LA Times looks at "Building 310" on the UC Irvine campus, where the non-Bilbaoesque structure may be razed soon.

"Does this look like an architectural masterpiece to you?" said [Jeremy] Roth, 22. "It's all rusted, the paint's all messed up?. It's an ugly little building." You've come along way, Gehry. A long way.
