Uploaded: August 16, 2003


this is the newly consrtructed "walt disney concert hall" in downtown los angeles. the whole exterior of this structure are these incredibly beautiful stainless steel panels that are situated in abstract ways. needless to say this structure is a work of art in itself. it definetly sets a new benchmark for extreme/absract achitechure. a lovely site to behold. it will be opened to the public in oct of 2003.
