Disney Hall Celebrates Tenth Anniversary

One of the few things I miss about not spending much time in L.A. is Frank Gehry‘s Disney Hall. As the L.A. Times just put it, “The building, which will turn 10 years old next month, responds to the lonely moonscape urbanism of Bunker Hill with a shimmering, canny gregariousness that spills down Grand Avenue in both directions. It understands and adapts to its peculiar context far better than the buildings by well-known architects that preceded (Arata Isozaki’s Museum of Contemporary Art, Moneo’s cathedral) and followed it (Coop Himmelblau’s arts high school) on Grand.”
