The Walt Disney Concert Hall is located in downtown Los Angeles and is known both for its excellent acoustics and for its distinctive architecture, which is characterized by curved metallic surfaces. Gehry has redesigned the building for more than a decade, while unexpected delays have delayed construction. It was finally completed on October 23, 2003.
The exterior of the building consists of the curved stainless steel skin, which resembles silver sails and incorporates light as an architectural medium, while the interior ] has a transparent, light-flooded lobby and the tightly closed foyer of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
In order to improve the sound of the hall by spatial and material means Gehry worked with the acoustic consultant Yasuhisa Toyota. In the garden there is a rose fountain dedicated to Lillian Disney, who made the first donation to the concert hall, which was built from broken pieces by Delft China, Lillian's darling.
