Walt Disney Concert Hall

Alright, let’s inject a little culture into these proceedings.

Let’s check out the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Walt Disney Concert Hall 12

Opened in 2003, this Frank Gehry-designed home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale. It also hosted Wrestlemania last year.

Okay, that last bit was a lie. But you believed it, didn’t you?

It took me several minutes to figure out which end was up with this picture. That should really tell you everything you need to know about the architectural design of the hall.

Walt Disney Concert Hall 3

I know, it seems like that stage isn’t very big for such a grand building. Well, this is just the little stage for “pre-show” type entertainment. The tours don’t go into the main auditorium due to “constant rehearsals and event planning” going on in there.

Honesty time. I know I’m going to run out of stuff to say. I don’t know squat about architectural design.

Walt Disney Concert Hall 4

Seriously, my architecture knowledge is limited to A. stuff overheard on The Brady Bunch and B. the Architect sketch from Monty Python’s Flying Circus. I could just start quoting from one of those.

Walt Disney Concert Hall 7

“The tenants arrive here and are carried along the corridor on a conveyor belt in extreme comfort, past murals depicting Mediterranean scenes, towards the rotating knives.”

Walt Disney Concert Hall 8

“The last twenty feet are heavily soundproofed. The blood pours down these chutes and the mangled flesh slurps into these…”

Walt Disney Concert Hall 9

“Do I take it that you are proposing to slaughter our tenants?”

Walt Disney Concert Hall 10

“Does that not fit in with your plans?”

Walt Disney Concert Hall 11

Yeah, on second thought maybe the Architect sketch is the wrong way to go. Look on the bright side, though. At least it wasn’t the bloody parrot sketch.
