Sculpting Harmony


To celebrate Walt Disney Concert Hall’s twentieth anniversary, Getty presents Sculpting Harmony—an exhibition developed in collaboration with Frank Gehry and the LA Phil.

Sculpting Harmony, a digital exhibition, features more than 150 models, sketches, and archival photographs documenting the concert hall’s development. New research, interviews, and innovative 3D media capture reveal the multidisciplinary process behind the building’s design. Using a digital platform to create an accessible exhibition, Sculpting Harmony ( is an example of how to create a visual narrative with a vast amount of information and different media from archival documentation. Drawn from the extensive Frank O. Gehry Papers at Getty, Modeling Sound and Sculpting Harmony celebrate the realization of this important Los Angeles landmark.

Sculpting Harmony is produced by the Getty Research Institute and Getty Digital.

It is a collaboration among Maristella Casciato, Serena Parr Cline, Gary Riichirō Fox, Linda Han, Emily Pugh, Todd Swanson, and Ian Webb.
