The Chiat/Day Building is a commercial building located in Venice, Los Angeles, California, which incorporates the public artwork Giant Binoculars by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen on its street-facing facade. Built between 1991 and 2001 for advertising agency Chiat/Day as its West Coast corporate headquarters, it was designed by Los Angeles architect Frank Gehry, and was his last project in Los Angeles until the Walt Disney Concert Hall began construction in 1999.The building is notable for the three different styles used in the main facade on Main Street, particularly the massive Giant Binoculars sculpture covering both a car and pedestrian entrance. The entrance to the parking garage is between the lenses of the binoculars.
