This Frank Gehry-designed performing arts venue, which opened in 2011, is a testament to the city's ability to reinvent itself after years of shaky real estate developments. In all respects, the Gehry campus is intended to be used as an everyday social arena, not simply a place to be gaped at. Visitors to the adjacent 2.5-acre park, designed by the renowned Dutch firm West 8, can watch rehearsals and symphony patrons through a six-story glass curtain wall, as well as concert simulcasts, video-art murals, and a weekly film series on a 7,000-square-foot projection wall. As Gehry explains, "The building is meant to be a seduction, a way to lure people in by blurring the distinction between the private and public realms."
