The work of Frank Gehry is either very amazing or quite disappointing– and the Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the controversial architect’s clear successes. Also one of the his most recognizable, this music hall is situated at 111 South Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles, California and now it’s an important part of the city’s cultural heritage. The Walt Disney music hall seats 2,265 guests, with an acoustic quality much lauded by visitor and critic alike. But it is the curved, sharp angled outer wall of reflective metal that gives Gehry’s structure it’s allure. The Frank Gehry-designed building was opened on October 23 2003. Both the architecture by Frank Gehry and the acoustics of the concert hall (designed by Yasuhisa Toyota) were praised in contrast to its predecessor, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
