Walt Disney Concert Hall

Frank Gehry is well known for his deconstructive and post-modern architectural style, he’s been chosen among a lot of famous architects in the world and the choice was right, he just did the magic again in Los Angeles, the deconstructive architecture style is one of few styles which is more of revolution in the world of architecture, for its unpredictable look and the impact it creates, the deconstructive architecture revolves around several major things like chaos, the chaos of impact, the chaos of shape and material used.

It worked well with the Walt Disney concert hall for the purpose it served, to serve peace and joy to the people who lived inside the hall with music inside and amazing art around them.

The imbalanced geometry in the style and structure attracts people and challenges other modern and postmodern architectural styles.

Architectural Analysis

The exterior of the Walt Disney Concert Hall is made of complete steel and that’s why it is shining in silver, Frank Gehry chose stone as the core material before but then the authorities needed something mighty in look and they chose steel inspired by titanium Guggenheim museum by Frank Gehry.

The stainless steel material is one of the hardest parts of architecture as it involves lots and lots of engineering to be done, after mining, grinding, and drilling today the structure is shining.

The interior of the Walt Disney concert is unusual in its structure, unlike ordinary concert halls it has the orchestra in the middle and the audience surrounded more like a stadium, it was designed to keep the people and artists in peace and harmony and to be in the un-solitude state.
