Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles, USA

Construction on the Walt Disney Concert Hall began in 1992, after a $50 million donation from Walt’s widow, Lillian Disney. Pritzker Prize winner Frank Gehry delivered the designs a year earlier but some of his initial plans were changed to improve acoustics. The building’s exterior of stainless steel, mirror-like panels had to be sanded to reduce sunlight beaming into adjacent apartments. If you love Gehry’s iconic Guggenheim Bilbao, you’ll fall for Disney Hall in turn.
