The acoustics are astounding. Have been a subscriber since it opened and love every time I go. Plus having Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic inside are the perfect complement.

Thanks to Ardy, we got to experience Mariza work her charm last week.

Frank Gehry is amazing. There's a great documentary done on him by Sydney Pollack called Sketches of Frank Gehry.
He's an example of how digital fabrication is making blue prints more and more archaic. Buildings are being built off site more and the sub assemblies get assembled in field and finished off. Now they get assembly instructions.
