"Grammy Awards"

Frank Gehry, Poster Designer?: The world’s most famous living concert hall designer has taken on another music-related task: designing the official poster for the 54th Grammy Awards. The poster, which depicts the Grammy's trademark golden gramophone in the middle of what appears to be a Gehry-designed city, is reminiscent of the starchitect’s 1991 Chiat/Day building. (Both pair a bizarre, oversize object — the Grammy or, in the case of Chiat/Day, a pair of binoculars — in the middle of a Gehry design.) Gehry designed the L.A. Philharmonic's Walt Disney Concert Hall and sits on the board of the philharmonic, which is this year nominated for a Grammy. [LAT]
