location Illinois, Chicago
function pavilion
contributed by piotr_krajewski

Placed in the middle of Millennium Park and framed by Lake Michigan on one side and Michigan Avenue on the other, the Burnham Pavilion relates to diverse city contexts, programmes and scales. Based on the specificity of the site, the design of the pavilion develops an elaborated relationship to the existing form of a rigid geometry but it also introduces a floating and multi-directional space. It orients itself to the city texture, to the flows of visitors exploring Millennium Park and most importantly introduces diverse vistas towards the park and city surroundings. The pavilion is open towards its sides in between two at the outset horizontal planes of a podium and a roof. Programmatically the pavilion invites people to gather, walk around and through and to explore and observe. The pavilion is sculptural, highly accessible, functioning as an urban activator.
