Spanning the 16-year history of the design and construction of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, this book provides a fresh and detailed, behind the scenes story of the design and technology from a variety of viewpoints. This is the first book to reveal the “process” of the design of a concert hall: how it is not solely the product of architect and acoustician, but a meld of architecture, acoustics, and theatre design together with the necessary engineering disciplines.
Featured in the book are interviews with members of the design team and representatives of the Los Angeles Philharmonic; a general discussion of concert hall design; a theatre consultant’s diary, as well as contributions from the theatre consulting team, sound system designer, and key performance equipment manufacturers.
This paperback book contains 240 pages, featuring 200 drawings and illustrations, 140 in color and is produced by Entertainment Technology Press in collaboration with Theatre Projects Trust.
