Sitting upon 4 acres, on top of Bunker Hill, the breathtaking steel-clad exterior curves are reminiscent of a ship’s sail. Unarguably, the most interesting building in Downtown Los Angeles is the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Be completely wowed by Frank Gehry’s genius after taking an audio tour of the music center and observe all the intricate details of his design. Opening in October 2003, it is considered one of the world’s best concert halls. Finding the balance between an imposing and inviting architectural style, you must see, walk, & hear this Modern LA icon!
