Chicago | Millennium Park | The Burnham Pavilions

From 6 weeks ago, before the Hadid had been fully assembled:

Program from The Burnham Plan Centenial website:

London-based Zaha Hadid and Amsterdam-based Ben van Berkel of UNStudio have designed architectural exhibits in Millennium Park this summer to honor the forward-looking spirit of the Plan of Chicago. Both are intended to echo the audacity of the 1909 Burnham Plan, which proclaimed, "What we as a people decide to do in the public interest we can and surely will bring to pass." They emphasize the importance of boldly imagining a better future for all, as Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett did in 1909 by making bold plans to showcase cutting-edge architecture to the public. The UNStudio Pavilion opened to the public on June 19, 2009 in conjunction with a Grant Park Music Festival concert. The Zaha Hadid Architects pavilion is open from August 4, 2009. Both pavilions will remain open in Millennium Park through October 31.

The Burnham Pavilion by Zaha Hadid Architects utilizes curvilinear formal geometries created from state-of-the-art fabric technologies; the Burnham Pavilion by UNStudio features a floating roof which offers surprising views of the Chicago skyline.

The Pavilion by UNStudio is built of steel donated by Chicago-based ArcelorMittal, and will be de-constructed and recycled after its exhibition in Millennium Park is complete. The Pavilion by Zaha Hadid Architects is a tent-like structure, and can be re-installed at another location following the Centennial. It is made of aluminum, mostly donated by Marmon/Keystone Industries, a member of the Marmon Group of Companies, and a tensile fabric cover created by Fabric Images.
