The Loop


Millennium Park is a prominent public park located on Michigan Avenue, directly across the street from the Chicago Cultural Center. The park is home to the Pritzker Pavilion, designed by Frank Gehry, as well as works by Anish Kapoor and Jaume Plensa. Since it opened 10 years ago, it has frequently hosted works of contemporary architecture and art. During the Chicago Architecture Biennial, Millennium Park featured newly commissioned installations, developed through collaborations with local architecture schools.
