Burham Pavilions

There are a lot going on in Chicago during summer. From festivals, concerts, free public events, exhibitions to temporary pavilions, the city has got it all. I was fortunate to be there at the right time when Zaha Hadid Architects and UN Studio's temporary pavilions are up and viewable by the public. Check out the shape of these pavilions as they compliment the geometrical shape of the park and city texture. These Burnham pavilions, located at the heart of Millennium Park, not only celebrates Chicago's famous cultural and architecture design but most importantly, it symbolizes Chicago's goals for future developments. As we all know, Chicago is one of the candidate cities for 2016 Olympics and these pavilions suggests that there are more to this city than just bright lights and fancy structures.

UN Studio:

Just a quick shout out to my daily doze of architecture fixation: Dezeen. Without you, I wouldn't have known about it prior to my scheduled trip. It is a shame I missed out on the LED lights shown during nighttime; but I will still show you images of what it looks like at night. The pavilions will be up until October 31st, 2009. Go there while you still have the chance.
