"Free-form architecture"

Frank Gehry's Schnabel House in Brentwood has been called many things: deconstructivist design (which Gehry says is inaccurate). Free-form architecture. Career watershed. Status symbol. Family home. Sculpture.

When Jon Platt, Tony Award-winning producer of "Angels in America" and a current producer of "Wicked" on Broadway, moved into the residence in 2006, it became something else: passion project. He went on to spend four years "invisibly shepherding this house into the 21st century," but in a way that he hoped would please Gehry.
