The subtle abstract quality of the matte stainless steel panels as they catch the light is what struck me the most about Frank Gehry’s celebrated and much photographed Deconstructivist Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles built in 2003. Originally, one portion of the building featured highly polished panels; however, these were dulled in 2005 due to heat reflection problems in nearby buildings. See images of the Gehry House, LA from 1978 where his experiments with deconstructivism in architecture began.
