Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Hall, the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, will be pictured on a postage stamp to be issued by the U.S. Postal Service on May 20.
The stamp is part of a series titled "Masterworks of Modern Architecture." Disney Hall, which opened in 2003, is the most recent building to be honored.
Like Gehry's other trademark buildings, Disney Hall is an idiosyncratic, curvaceous structure sheathed in metal—in this case, stainless steel. The 2,265-seat auditorium, created with acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota, is clad in hardwood.
