Walt Disney Concert Hall

Located in Downtown Los Angeles this dramatic structure is the fourth hall of the Los Angeles Music Center. Seating up to 2,265 people it serves as the home of Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and Los Angeles Master Chorale. Built with an initial gift by Lillian Disney, to build a performance venue as a gift to the people of Los Angeles and a tribute to Walt Disney`s devotion to the arts, it had Frank Gehry, the acclaimed iconic architect designing the building.

The acoustics were designed by Yasuhisa Toyota. The Hall`s reverberation time is approximately 2.2 seconds unoccupied and 2.0 seconds occupied. The walls and ceiling of the hall are finished with Douglas-fir while the floor is finished with oak. Subsequent modifications were made to the Founders Room exterior. While most of the building`s exterior was designed with matte stainless steel finish, Founders Room and Children`s Amphitheater were designed with highly polished mirror-like panels.
