|"Thanks, great comment. Here's a quote from City of Quartz by Mike Davis: "A very early example of Gehry's new urban realism was his 1964 solution of how to insert high property values and sumptuary spaces in to decaying neighborhoods. His Danziger Studio in Hollywood is the pioneer instance of what has become an entire species of Los Angeles 'stealth houses', dissimulating their luxurious qualities with proletarian or gangster facades.
BTW, Gibson read the book and liked it; he's taken the term and then extended the meaning."
