Gehry’d


 

The Walt Disney Concert Hall… One of my favorite structures in LA.

Very Frank Gehry, very fluid, a mass of steel contorted in the middle of LA Downtown. The one thing that I don’t like about the structure – it has no vantage point for a proper picture. Built on a corner, the traffic signals, cars, etc all disturb the structure itself.

But overall, the structure is exactly as expected from any other Gehry structure. Lots of angles – each that seem different because of the way the steel glints and catches light.

Piece of Trivia: The structure was made and erected in polished steel initially. After a while, each panel was painstakingly brushed finished off to a matte version since the residents and passerby’s complained that it shone like a beacon in the strong California Sun.
