Millennium Park, an open-air art gallery

This urban garden of the new millennium presents extraordinary contemporary works, making this “green gem” a favourite of Chicagoans.

Located in the Loop, this park of 99,000 m2, which stretches along Lake Michigan, was the city's largest project for the Universal Exhibition of 1893. At the edges of the shaded paths arise bold contemporary installations, such as the Cloud Gate by Anish Kapoor, a gigantic polished metal ball reflecting the Chicago skyline.

Originally designed as a green space covering an underground car park, the project soon included works by other contemporary architects and artists, such as Frank Gehry's Jay Pritzker Pavilion and BP Bridge, Renzo Piano's South Exelon Pavilion, and Jaume Plensa's Crown Fountain.
