Dulling Disney

Headline in the Los Angeles Times today announcing that Walt Disney Concert Hall will have to undergo mini-makeover to dull down it’s shine. The super polished steel panels have been clad in netting for the past year to protect neighbours from what was apparently a vicious glare. Love this quote from the times:

“Beams of sunlight reflected from portions of the hall have roasted the sidewalk to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, enough to make plastic sag, cause serious sunburn to people standing on the street and create a hazard to passing motorists, according to a report from a consultant hired by the county to investigate the problem.”

…cause serious sunburn?!
