Iron: Erecting the Walt Disney Concert Hall by Gil Garcetti

Model: 18904492
Manufacturer: Misc

Item currently in retail store, will ship in 24-48 hours.

By now, most everyone is familiar with the graceful curves of a building designed by Frank O. Gehry. Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall posed extraordinary challenges to ironworkers. With the building skin stretched tight and tolerances shaved to a thousandth of an inch, there was simply no room for typical industry tolerances. This breed of ironworker relies on tools as ancient as hammers and as modern as lasers yet the muscular forms of these fearless workers defying gravity hundreds of feet above the ground is testament to the great unchanging tradition of their trade.

Photographer Gil Garcetti had unparalleled free access to the construction site. The personal relationships he developed with the workers over the course of many months and his admiration for their artistry are evident in these moving portraits. Garcetti's evocative images, reproduced in rich duotones, bring to life the romantic ideal of the heavy industry.
