ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California, designed by architect Frank Gehry. It began in 1987, when Lillian Disney, Walt's widow, provided a surprise gift of U.S.$50 million to build a new home for the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. Lillian was utterly puzzled by the whiplashing scoops of Gehry's design, which he had developed with the help of software used to design fighter planes. Gehry's first instinct had been to design an auditorium as asymmetrical as the walls outside.
