Celebrity architect Frank Gehry has designed more than his share of crazy structures.

There’s the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain; the Dancing House in Prague; the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles and the Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago.

But these pale in comparison to his latest work: a hat for Lady Gaga.

Gehry was asked by his artist friend Francesco Vezzoli to design a headpiece for the off-beat pop star for her performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

He came up with a piece that Curbed describes as the Walt Disney Concert Hall in millinery

The headgear was no easy feat for the deconstructionist architect.

"Since I've never designed a hat before, I was afraid she wouldn't be able to walk....I did have an idea that involved people with sticks holding it up, walking behind her. I didn't know how far I could go with this thing," Gehry said to the New Yorker.

Best part: he designed it on his iPhone.
