Frank Gehry in
Berlin and Los Angeles: Space for Music
April 25, 2018–July 30, 2017
The Getty Center, Los Angeles
This exhibition celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the sister-city partnership between Berlin and Los Angeles by exploring two iconic buildings: the Berlin Philharmonic (1963), designed by Hans Scharoun, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall (2003), designed by Frank Gehry. Focusing on the buildings’ extraordinary interiors, the exhibition brings together original drawings, sketches, prints, photographs, and models to convey each architect’s design process.
