Chicago's Jay Pritzker Pavilion: Frank Gehry's Contemporary Vision

As the centerpiece of Chicago's Millennium Park, the Jay Pritzker Pavilion is a spectacular contemporary-style design by architect Frank Gehry. The band shell is made from brushed stainless steel. The main stage can accommodate a full orchestra and 150-member choir, and the pavilion has an 11,000-person capacity. The venue also has an innovative sound system that mimics indoor concert hall acoustics. Other well-known architectural works by Frank Gehry include the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the 8 Spruce St. tower in New York City.
