Reviews - What do customers think about In-Phil Architecture at the Walt Disney Concert Hall: Hagy Belzberg Architects?
An exceptional book! May 4, 2006
I bought this book after visiting the Walt Disney Concert Hall. I was surprised to discover that while Frank Gehry designed the actual building and concert hall, a young lesser known architect designed the stunning restaurant Patina, the book store and the cafeteria. I purchased the book because of the beautiful pictures, but then found the text interesting and quite informative. BRAVO!
