Walt Disney Concert Hall

Here are a few exterior shots of the Frank Gehry designed, Walt Disney Concert Hall, in downtown Los Angeles. With a matte finish of brushed stainless steel on wavy almost undulating panels, it is certainly not like your average glass and steel box. Originally parts of the exterior were un-brushed and highly reflective. Some of these large concave surfaces caused overheating problems on adjacent properties. While the front of the hall might seem too ostentatious or even garish, the garden in the back of the building was more subdued and seemed to work better for me. It offered many nooks and crannies for patrons, who might seek some seclusion during intermission.
