contributed by rtaube

Sitting atop the historic Bunker Hill in downtown Los Angeles, the Walt Disney Concert Hall occupies a site adjacent to the existing Music Center in Los Angeles. Originally conceived in 1987, the project was put on hold for nearly 12 years, until the necessary funding was found. After Gehry's success with the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain, the project plans quickly moved forward and construction began in 1999. At the opening ceremony, Gehry recounted his ideas of inspiration for the project that he had shared with Mrs. Disney. He said that she should think of the Hall as a bowl of white roses, and that he wanted to make a flower for her.
