Disney Hall dulled to stop complaints

One of Lillian Disney’s legacies will be the wonderful gift she gave to Los Angeles in the form of the Walt Disney Concert Hall. If you’re in the LA area you should try to schedule a visit for a tour and a show. As I understand it, seeing a show is the only way to see the actuall concert hall, the tours do not go in. What you won’t see, however, is the original metallic shine of the hall. Architect’s Frank Gerhry’s bold (and reflective) vision is now being sanded down to protect the eyes, skin, and electric bills of its neighbors. More at this LA Times story which states that they are working with the architect’s office to stay as close to his vision as possible. That’s good.
