^^^ There is a reason why Gehry is stuck designing almost nothing but public projects (with the obvious exception of his tower in NYC which is relatively tame for a Gehry). His style is simply not practically applicable in 99% of cases and that's why he's always assigned projects where there is some huge budget for the architecture. Even in his NYC tower the reason he got the commission was only because his fame made it a big selling point to lot's of snobby rich people, even then it would not have been possible if he really went "all out" on the design.
