InterActiveCorp IAC Headquarters, Chelsea New York

Frank Gehry designed the IAC Headquarters in New York, completed in 2007.

The building's form is rather tame for Frank Gehry, especially as Richard Meier projects and a Jean Nouvel project rose nearby. The blocky buildings in the context are beaten into curves, and layers rise vertically like a skyscraper. The violence of the city has made its impression and smoothed over the rough edges like a stone in a river.

The small modular and organic composition of the building reminds one of a beehive, a historically inspirational form for such buildings as the Capital building. It portrays industry, hard work, and single purpose.

A 118 ft wall in the lobby flashes changing videos, displaying the company's leadership in media technology. The interior takes on a very office-building form, with white walls and ceilings and pillars.
