Millennium Park Chicago · 2004

Approaching from the street, one has little idea of what's ahead.

The Frank Ghery bandshell, seen from the east side.

The stage is enclosed by massive sliding glass doors.

Looking north through the bandshell to the Amoco building across the street.

Cloud Gate, a.k.a. "The Bean"

seen here on the inside, still under construction.

The famous fountain douses the kids.

That would be us, looking at you looking at us.
When Cloud Gate is finished the steel panels will fit together seamlessly.
