Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Chicago



One of Frank Gehry's most outstanding projects, the Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago's Millennium Park peels out in billowing sheets of shining steel into an open grassy audience with a canopy of ghost structure overhead. It has seating for 4,000 and a lawn that can hold 7,000 more people. It sits just across from the Aon Center and the famous "bean" sculpture. The two other sides have a massive garden of trees and a winding pedestrian bridge over the highway. The size and dynamic of the bandshell and overhead structure are impressive against the skyscraper backdrop in this urban park. It opened in 2004.
