SEARCH IN BRIEF

 
Better late than never

Almost two months after the structure was set to open in Millennium Park, Zaha Hadid's Burnham Pavilion is now ready to accept visitors.

Designed as one of two pavilions to celebrate the centenary of Daniel Burnham's Chicago Plan which outlined the structure of the city, visitors will be able to take in the ambiance within from tomorrow.

The structure will play host to a sound and video installation by artist Thomas Gray that portrays Chicago’s transformation from past to future.

The pavilion is constructed of an aluminium skeleton frame with tightly stretched material which form a cocoon. If you are interested in learning more about the construction of the pavilion, 'Talks with the team' will be held every other Wednesday (starting tomorrow) where structural engineer Chris Rockey will discuss the design from 5.30 pm.
