Walt Disney Concert HallLos Angeles, California

  • Considered as one of the most sophisticated concert halls in the world, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California provides for both an aural and visual experience
  • DeSimone provided 3D structural modeling and detailing for the steel portions of the project in order to generate fabrication shop drawings, material lists, and CNC files for the steel fabricator
  • The project features Frank Gehry’s signature design style, including doubly curved titanium panel geometries
  • DeSimone worked with the architect on this highly complex geometric building in the late 90s. Interoperability between construction tools was still in its early stages and importing the Architect’s Catia model into Tekla Structures proved to be challenging but demonstrated our company’s capability as an early adaptor of BIM solutions. The contractor, Mortenson Construction, describes how they were literally forced to use 3D/4D technology in this difficult project by receiving 3D models as contract documents
