Though the doors of architect Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los
Angeles have been open for only about a year and a half, the building is already
expected to undergo renovations. Construction crews will be sandblasting the shiny,
mirror-like structure due to complaints from occupants of neighboring buildings
about the glare and temperature increases, reported Engineering News Record (ENR).
The sandblasting project, which was approved by county board supervisors earlier
this month, will cost $90,000 and is expected to correct the glare from about
2 percent of the building's stainless steel cladding, ENR reported.
