Last Sunday my husband and I went to hear a concert performed by the California Philharmonic. The concert, "Cowboys and Copland", wasn't my pick, but it was right up my classical music and filmscore-loving husband's alley. Checking out the architecture and the nooks and crannies of the Frank Gehry designed Disney Hall was my cup of tea, however, so I hope you will enjoy this very picture heavy post of me enjoying the scenery and architecture of Disney Hall.
The skirt I am wearing is from Clover Canyon. I thought it would be appropriate to wear because it is all about design and architecture. The quirky print details the blueprints of a home and a birds-eye view of what I assume to be the end results of the blue-print. I first discovered this amazing skirt on phiphi's blog and I knew it had to have it. Thanks to some expert sizing advice from the lovely phiphi, it arrived at my doorstep shortly after first discovering it on her blog and it fit just right!
Pictured below is the skeleton of the upcoming Broad Museum, which is situated right next to Disney Hall and scheduled to open in 2015. Eli Broad is a power player in the world of contemporary art and has enough money to build his own museum to house his own collection of art. What a great way to secure one's immortality!
If you have the time you can visit the rooftop portion of Disney Hall. It features gardens, sculptures and more curvy metal stuff that architect Gehry is so well known for. I really wanted to venture here after seeing the movie Her, which had a short segment filmed in this location probably due to the film's futuristic setting.
The rose sculpture I am standing in front of is dedicated to Walt Disney's wife, Lillian Disney. The mosaic is constructed out of broken shards of Royal Delft porcelain vases which were her favorite.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my adventure to Disney Hall. From the bottom to the top it is a cool place to hang out, hear music, and take blog photos of yourself. I hope to return sometime soon!
