The symphony of construction at Disney Hall is finally completed. The Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra’s long-awaited new home—a sculptural arrangement of billowing stainless steel-clad shapes—is the topic of this NewsHour program. Frank Gehry comments on how he designed the concert hall using 3-D computer modeling, while the Philharmonic’s executive director and two musicians extol the virtues of master acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota’s efforts. Sounding a dissonant note is urban planning critic Sam Hall Kaplan, who calls L.A.’s new signature civic icon an elitist misuse of money better spent on numerous smaller renewal projects.
