It's hard to believe, but starchitect Frank Gehry only ever designed one gazebo (according to decorative arts sale site Modern One, anyway). The nine foot tall steel and copper piece was designed in 1983 and was originally housed inside Rebecca's Restaurant in Venice, which a 1986 LA Times article says Gehry decorated "with an octopus and two crocodiles that dangle from the ceiling, a copper gazebo, telephone pole 'trees,' a quilted metal door and panels of apricot-colored marble illuminated from behind." (They called it "one generation removed from the Hard Rock Cafe.") Modern One is selling the gazebo for $250,000.
