stainless steel curves of the building's exterior are incredible and different from every angle. The main auditorium of the concert hall is constructed of wood paneling that create curved, arena seating. The Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world and was a gift from the Disney family to the people of Los Angeles.

A beautiful venue to listen to classical music. Love walking around it before the show to find really cool hidden parts of the venue as well as the numerous artwork/wacky things in side. Going inside the actual hall, the music is vibrant, and wherever you sit, I think you get a great listen of the music. Wonderful stuff. Park underneath or Uber.

A true masterpiece. If you can, try and see a show here as well. You won't be disappointed.

The exterior is a popular destination for couples to take photos. I had the opportunity to watch a performance in the inside. It's quite spectacular.

This venue is beautiful. I've seen the symphony here a few times already. Acoustics are great. It's a Frank Ghery building so you know it's a beautiful designed establishment. There are stairs and paths that lead you toward the top of the building outside where you can see nice views of the city and the hills.

Beautiful building on the outside. I have not been inside but I hear it's just as grand. Going up the stairs on the side of the building, there is a small garden with a view and tables and chairs to chill.

Beautiful, acoustically perfect concert hall. Worth checking out even if you're not a classical music enthusiast - they do building tours.

Frank Gehry's design for the Walt Disney Concert Hall is a must-see in Downtown LA. Even better, check their schedule to see a show inside.

I love architecture and this place never disappoints. Currently, there's a special free art installation called NIMBUS installed by the "Industry Concept" with recorded performance by LA Phil.

This Nimbus installation glows and is arrayed above the elevator. A must see if you're around the area. I'm not sure how long this installation is here for so I encourage to catch it before it disappears.

Designed by famous architect and (still alive and kicking) Los Angelean, Frank Gehry, this architectural masterpiece is worth a go-see even without an event taking place! However the LA Phil performs here and the place sounds as good as it looks—incredible acoustics and visuals you won't want to miss!!! If you have young children, take them to the VERY AFFORDABLE 'Toyota Youth Symphonies.' Music and dance often accompany the 45 minute weekend concerts with arts and crafts and other hands-on activities beforehand. Children under 12 will instantly fall in love with the arts here. Anyone over 12 will too!

A visual work of art that is a venue for audible works of art. One of the most recognizable landmarks in downtown LA, the concert hall is across the street from The Broad, a hop up the street to the cathedral, and a jaunt downhill to Grand Central Market for a foodfest.

Designed by Frank Gehry, Walt Disney Concert Hall has, along with the Hollywood Sign and the silhouette of City Hall, become a commonly recognized symbol of Los Angeles. Home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, it is one of the world's most acoustically sophisticated concert halls.

Whether visiting for a concert or simply for a tour, the building's perimeter should be explored. The Concert Hall's "backyard" has a small outdoor amphitheater, a fountain, a park and various plants all of which compliment the structure. In addition, views of downtown from different perimeter vantage points help make navigating the numerous outside staircases rewarding.

The incredible architecture of the Walt Disney Concert Hall was the perfect setting for a blissful Sunday afternoon. LA's philharmonic orchestra brought Beethoven to life - as I closed my eyes, I was transported to another time as the sweet melody of a 50 piece orchestra filled the air.
