Walt Disney Concert Hall
Built between 1992 and 2003 and designed by the legendary architect Frank Gehry, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is the headquarters of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and an impressive work of architecture.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall is made up of 12,500 pieces of steel and holds over 2,200 people. It is designed not only to be aesthetically impressive but also to provide acoustics that are so spectacular it is used not only by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, but also by the Los Angeles Master Choir.
In 1987 Walt Disney's widow decided to donate 50 million dollars to the construction of a philharmonic hall that would become a landmark in the world of music, art and culture.
Over 70 international artists submitted their projects to the architectural competition, which was won by the legendary work of Frank Gehry, who proposed an experimental metallic design for the building's exterior and a shoebox design for the interior, mirroring that of the Boston Symphony Hall.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall is an authentic work of art, and even if you don't attend any of the events held there, it's an incredible building to see in real life and you can also take advantage of being in the area to see The Broad or the Museum of Contemporary Art.
