Above all, Disney Hall is Frank Gehry’s response to what was, at that time, a blank, expressionless Bunker Hill (Isozaki’s Museum of Contemporary Art included). Most noteworthy, Gehry collaborated with the acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota to design a hall with an impressive buoyant quality of sound.
Consequently, this concert hall is a fantastic creation in architecture. Even more, it is confident and vibrant. As a result, it has its own character. It is sleek and unwittingly expressionistic.
Ultimately, Gehry likes to call himself a combination of architect and artist. Is he a sculpture? Yes, I think so. Is he a painter? Absolutely. Certainly, he is a master architect.
