Frank Gehry's iconic outdoor music pavilion is the focal point of Chicago's Millennium Park. Gehry's trademark ribbons of steel burst from a massive bandshell that serves as the setting for more than 100 free concerts, films and programs each year. The 320-by-700-foot great lawn is surmounted by a trellis of soaring, curved steel pipes that support suspended speakers. This design offers a column-free, state-of-the-art listening experience for audiences of up to 11,000. Popular programs presented annually include: the Millennium Park Summer Music and Film Series, Millennium Park Presents, the Chicago Jazz Festival, the Chicago Gospel Music Festival and the Grant Park Music Festival.

Behind the Scenes Access: Walk on stage and tour backstage areas never open to the public.

Architect: Frank Gehry, 2004
