Millennium Park Unviewed: Exploring the Architecture and Public Art of Chicago's New Attraction

Chicago’s much anticipated Millennium Park opened in the Summer of 2004. This slide lecture features a discussion of the history of this epic project and some its central features including: the Frank O. Gehry designed Jay Pritzker Pavilion and BP Bridge; Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate sculpture; Jaume Plensa’s Crown Fountain; and the Lurie Garden designed by the team of Kathryn Gustafson, Piet Oudolf, and Robert Israel. This program will place certain elements of the park in the context of other recent projects undertaken by its major players, including Gehry’s Walt Disney Concert Hall.
