Wow, that is interesting. Thanks for sharing!
LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles officials are considering ways to take some of the luster off the shiny, new Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Glare from the mirror-like, curving steel walls is blamed for blinding drivers and raising temperatures in nearby buildings.
A neighbor says, in the summer, "It's like sitting in a sauna."
Officials have already taken a temporary step of stretching gray mesh over one tower near a condominium unit.
In January, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will consider permanent solutions. One idea is to scuff up parts of the wall through sandlbasting.
The Disney family contributed more than 100 (m) million dollars to build the concert hall, which houses the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Since they started having problem like that with skyscrapers in the 80's, you would have thought they would have planned better for it.
Could this be Uncle Walt's revenge?
