|This is the Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park. |
Chicago seems to be very committed to its public spaces in a way that Toronto often is not. People friendly design is everywhere and there is a definite respect for existing architecture.
The new integrates beautifully with the historical.
I was delighted to learn that this pavilion was designed by Frank Gehry who also designed one of my favourite local spaces - The Art Gallery of Ontario.
|One could spend a whole day at The Art Institute. What a magnificent museum! I only had the morning and chose to spend most of it in the European Modernism galleries.|
Braque, Duchamp, Man Ray, Gris, Miro. My little Surreal heart was all aflutter.
|We came across this fantastic horse sculpture in a children's park|
on E. Chicago.
|Our evening walk in the park was splendid.|
