You don't need to travel to Bilbao, Spain to see Frank Gehry masterpiece. The Walt Disney Concert Hall designed by the same famed architect showcases and conveys the same magic spirit of steel, light and elegant curves. Walk across the street corner and take in this building in whole. Take the tour (either guided or self-guided) and walk around all parts of the interior, then go outside and venture through the narrow pathways between those steel walls and the garden. Peer down onto the street from the top of the brass wall. You will be in awe just as I am with this building of the wood interior and metal exterior, organic and inorganic melt together in harmony. They rely on volunteers to man the tour so it is only available on selected days. Check their web site for the tour days. I personally prefer the self-guided tour which allows you to go at your own pace and take as many pictures as you please without trying to catch up with the group. It is narrated by John Lithgow and packed with information and stories about the history and design of this building, with interviews including Gehry. You can park at the concert hall parking lot ($11). With the receipt that you have taken the tour (which is free) you will get a refund of $9, a pretty good deal!
