Frank Gehry designed the Winston Guest House as a piece of working sculpture, inspired by the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi.

The guest home stood on the banks of Lake Minnetonka, and was listed as one of the best works of 1987 by Time magazine.

It was given to the University of St. Thomas and moved 110 miles to the Gainey Conference Center in Owatonna, MN where it can now be toured by the public.
