  • Toyota and We're Not Talking Cars Here!

    Yasuhisa Toyota, the acoustician behind the new Elbphilharmonie in Germany and Disney Hall in L.A., forever changed the concert hall. We revisit his first landmark project, Suntory, which turns 30.

    Thanks for linking the article. I hadn't realize that there's a Toyota designed hall here in the SF Bay area on the Stanford campus. I haven't been to a concert there since the new hall (Bing Concert Hall) opened in 2013 but this motivates me to want to catch something there soon.
    Thanks again.

      As a part-time residence of Bangkok, I'm excited to learn Mr. Toyota has designed / designing a new concert hall in Thailand's capital too. : )
