The latest issue of The American Organist features a beautiful picture of an incredible organ just installed at the Disney Concert Hall in LA. Here is an interview about the organ with its designer, Manuel Rosales, and you can find some pictures of the hall and organ here .
Organists are saying the organ the "french fry" design. The pipes that appear to be scattered around the instrument are curved, and actually speak (they're not just facade). A scaled-down model of the instrument can be seen here, but the TAO picture is better. I'll try to get it scanned in or find it on the net.
The organ has around 6K pipes, including a Llamarada division, featuring a "Trompeta de Los Angeles" stop.
