Pritzker Pavilion


Pritzker Pavilion

This revolutionary outdoor concert venue in Millennium Park, with its billowing sculpture of brushed stainless steel ribbons, is home to the Grant Park Music Festival and other free concerts and events. Frank Gehry, its designer, also conceived the pavilion's unique sound system which distributes sound evenly via an overarching trellis which extends over the lawn area at the rear of the performance space.
