On Saturday afternoon, architect Frank Gehry's latest creation ? a characteristically lyrical cluster of crimped and undulating buildings ? opened to the public here as the new home of the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art. Like nearly every recent Gehry project, it is likely to become an instant landmark. The question is whether it will be an enduring one. The buildings front a stretch of Gulf of Mexico coastline that is a notorious bull's-eye for hurricanes. The homes that once stood on the four-acre museum site were destroyed by Hurricane Camille in 1969, and the lot sat vacant for decades.

Deep in the rolling green hills of North Carolina's Piedmont region, the plateau between the coastal plain and the Appalachian Mountains, the earth is rich and red. Drive down country roads and the dirt rises in billowing ocher clouds. Along paved byways, eroding ditches run like unraveled ribbons of orange. In a soaking rain, it mires shoes and tires and it clouds rivers, creeks and ponds. The red clay is everywhere, as are the potters of Seagrove.
