After admiring L.A. City Hall, my germana gran and I walked over to the Walt Disney Concert Hall designed by Frank Gehry. Cars traveling on Hope and 1st Street slow down as they near the concert hall to admire the unusual structure amist the more traditional buildings surrounding it. We entered an open staircase that led us to the top of the building, giving us an east view of downtown.
The concert hall is home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic where one day I will make it a point to attend a concert. The concert hall has the Frank Gehry stamp of curving stainless steel and spectacular right angles. The concert hall looks a lot like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain which is another incredible work of art. In my adopted town of Barcelona we have the giant bronze fish sculpture standing on the waterfront, designed also by this genius architect.
