Gehry Relocation Up In The Air

Two years after he agreed to relocate from his Los Angeles-based headquarters to a two-building campus in El Segundo, world-renowned architect Frank Gehry will possibly not make the move after all, according to The Daily Breeze.

"He hasn't informed the city of his current plans," said El Segundo Mayor Eric Busch. "But he did have several different ideas about where his office was going to be."

The city expected Gehry and employees of his firm Gehry Partners, LLP, to move to the El Segundo campus in July 2009, but plans changed when Gehry considered a smaller building across the street.

"I have to believe the downturn in the economy has affected the construction business and the architectural business," Busch said. "(Gehry) reduced his workforce because of the slumping demand, and that may have affected his move to El Segundo."
