After Beekman Tower's topping off ceremony, we didn't think we could be surprised by anything Frank Gehry said or did any more. That is, until Archpaper pointed us to the news that Gehry designed a hat for Lady Gaga to wear to a benefit at LA's Museum of Contemporary Art. It sounds like the move from buildings to headgear was a little challenging for our favorite Canadian-born starchitect, who drew the initial design for the hat on his iPhone: "Since I've never designed a hat before, I was afraid she wouldn't be able to walk....I did have an idea that involved people with sticks holding it up, walking behind her. I didn't know how far I could go with this thing." Thanks to photos from Gaga Daily, we know exactly how far he went, and it doesn't quite stop us from wishing for people with sticks. Next time, Gehrmeister.
