Architect Frank Gehry (b. 1929) worked with San Francisco landscape architecture firm, Sasaki Walker Associates (SWA) on the Concord Pavilion. The amphitheater covered 35 acres and was formed by digging into the crown of a hill. The deep depression's walls blocked automobile noise from Kirker Road, and helped muffle sound emanating from the amphitheater stage.

Concord Pavilion won an American Institute of Architects Honor Award in the American Institute of Steel Construction's 17th Annual Competition for Steel-framed Structures.
