Walt Disney concert hall 1997 and 2003 -frank owen gehry

A PRESENTATION BY: Archana tayal

Architectural style His work falls within the style of Deconstructivism, also known as DeCon Architecture, i.e. its ability to go beyond current modalities of structural definition. Style seems unfinished or crude. use of inexpensive objects and nontraditional media such as clay to make serious art Doesn't reflect specific social or universal ideas

Angeles Philharmonic, In turn this is one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world, providing both visual and aural intimacy.

interiors The focus of the design is the 2,400-seat Concert Hall. Wooden seating blocks surround the orchestra platform together with the saillike wooden ceiling forms. The audience surrounds the stage, which is elevated slightly higher than the adjacent orchestra seats.

Drawback: A dropped program, a closing door, or a simple cough becomes part of the symphony.

The walls and ceiling of the hall are finished with Douglas fir while the floor is finished with oak. wood helps to achieve the sound reflection The reflective qualities of the surface were amplified by the concave sections of the Founders Room walls

Escalators to the foyer

Entrance lobby The Numerous video screens and an overhead sound system connect the open lobby with the orchestra. Acting as the conduit between the city and the symphony, the entry lobby bustles with energy, day and night.


A pipe organ occupy a central position between the seating blocks at stage rear.

Skylights and a large window at the rear of the Hall allows natural light to enhance daytime concerts.
