The Concept

The Walt Disney Concert Hall, designed by Frank O. Gehry, with the acoustics of the concert hall designed by Yasuhisa Toyota, has quickly become an architectural landmark. Clad in 14,800 sqm (160,000 sq ft) of 'angel-hair' finish curved stainless steel panels and 4,000 sqm (43,000 sq ft) of geometric glazing for the auditorium, the building serves as the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.

A very complex skin shape, featured by no repetitive elements, with anchors layout challenges, engineered using the latest Catia systems. Each of the 4 foot by 10 foot stainless steel panels were field formed by hand as they were attached to the steel stud back-up system. 

«It is designed to be one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world, providing both visual and aural intimacy for an unparalleled musical experience.» LA Phil Harmonic
