His best-received works include several concert halls for classical music, such as the boisterous and curvaceous Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles , which has been the centerpiece of the neighborhood's revitalization and has been labeled by the Los Angeles Times as "the most effective answer to doubters, naysayers, and grumbling critics an American architect has ever produced",  the open-air Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago 's Millennium Park ,  and the understated New World Center in Miami Beach , which the LA Times called "a piece of architecture that dares you to underestimate it or write it off at first glance.
Other notable works include academic buildings such as the Stata Center  at MIT and the Peter B. Lewis Library at Princeton University ,  museums such as the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle , Washington ,  commercial buildings such as the IAC Building in New York City,  and residential buildings such as Gehry's first skyscraper, the Beekman Tower at 8 Spruce Street  in New York City.
Several recent and ongoing major works by Gehry around the world include the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building in the University of Technology Sydney , completed in However, in recent years, some of Gehry's more prominent designs have failed to go forward.
In addition to unrealized designs such as a major Corcoran Art Gallery expansion in Washington, DC, and a new Guggenheim museum near the South Street Seaport in New York City, Gehry was notoriously dropped by developer Bruce Ratner from the Pacific Park Brooklyn redevelopment project and was also dropped in as the designer of the World Trade Center Performing Arts Center , both in New York City.

Gehry said he would not design a building like the "crumpled paper bag" again. Said to "defy categorisation", Gehry's work reflects a spirit of experimentation coupled with a respect for the demands of professional practice and has remained largely unaligned with broader stylistic tendencies or movements.
Continually working between given circumstances and unanticipated materializations, he has been assessed as someone who "made us produce buildings that are fun, sculpturally exciting, good experiences", although his approach may become "less relevant as pressure mounts to do more with less".
Gehry's style at times seems unfinished or even crude, but his work is consistent with the California " funk " art movement in the s and early s, which featured the use of inexpensive found objects and nontraditional media such as clay to make serious art.
