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.
