This is one of a series I took at Millennium Park in Chicago in the Summer. This is the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, designed by Frank Gehry. I had a lot of problem with the sun reflecting off the building which is a stunning piece of modern architecture but a devil to photograph I discovered!
Frank Gehry, winner of the National Medal of Art, applied his signature style to this revolutionary outdoor concert venue. The Pavilion stands 120-feet high, with a billowing headdress of brushed stainless steel ribbons that frame the stage opening and connect to an overhead trellis of crisscrossing steel pipes. The trellis supports the sound system, which spans the 4,000 fixed seats and the Great Lawn, which accommodates an additional 7,000 people.
This state-of-the-art sound system, the first of its kind in the country, was designed to mimic the acoustics of an indoor concert hall by distributing enhanced sound equally over both the fixed seats and the lawn.
