One of the most unique buildings in the world, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles features undulating stainless steel walls.
The shiny curved walls of the Concert Hall continually reflect the changing sunlight, time of day and coloring of the sky.
Sophisticated aerospace software was used to design the building. That made it possible to position beams in space using precise coordinates defined in the building plans.
Many areas of the complex are open to the public during the day, including the lobby a one-0acre park with view of many L.A. landmarks and the W. M. Keck Foundation Children’s Amphitheater. At the center of the park is a rose-shaped fountain covered with fragments of Royal Delft porcelain vases and tiles. Gehry designed the fountain as a tribute to the late Lillian Disney who loved Delft porcelain and roses. Her $50 million gift in 1987 launched the construction in 1987.
Individual audio tours and guided group tours are available many days of the week.
