World-renowned architect Frank Gehry has established an impressive portfolio of highly acclaimed buildings throughout his long and illustrious career. Although he has designed structures that proudly stand throughout the world, some of his standouts exist right here in California, including the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Lillian Disney, widow of Walt Disney, donated $50 million in 1987 to help initialize her vision of honoring the unique climate, culture, and spirit of Los Angeles and its citizens. In addition to showcasing his contemporary design style, it was requested of Gehry that the venue feature the best acoustics in the world, which it achieved thanks to the efforts of Yasuhisa Toyota. The Walt Disney Concert Hall is considered an architectural masterpiece and the newest addition to The Music Center’s four venues. It opened on October 24, 2003, and is the permanent home of both the Los Angeles Philharmonic & the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
The Coalition for Responsible Equitable Economic Development (CREED LA) proudly supports environmentally-responsible construction projects throughout Los Angeles that not only have a positive impact on the local community, but support LA’s working families as well.
CREED LA fights to ensure that developers pay fair wages to all the hard working construction professionals throughout the industry while simultaneously providing them with quality health care, continued training, and trustworthy retirement plans.
