Sandblasting Scheduled to for Gehry's Disney Concert Hall

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.
