Binoculars

Frank Gehry, Chiat/Day, Binoculars by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van BruggenChiat/Day, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen

Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen have designed many oversize objects around the world including lipstick, bowling pins, and brooms.  These 45 x 44 x 18 ft. binoculars stand out among their designs because they are not only abnormally large, but they also serve as a porte-cochere to a 1991 Frank Gehry design that once housed the advertising giant, Chiat/Day.
