USA: Walt Disney Concert Hall

Walt Disney Concert Hall is the fourth hall of the Los Angeles Music Center. From the stainless steel curves of its striking exterior to the state-of-the-art acoustics of the hardwood-paneled main auditorium, the structure embodies the unique energy and creative spirit of the city of Los Angeles and its orchestra. The hall is compromised between an arena seating configuration, and a classical shoebox design like the Boston Symphony Hall.
