this blog is really nice!!!
Very nice shot of the construction! Thanks for uploading this image. I do wonder why our country's architects cannot outshine the designs of those from other countries. It would be nice to see more work from the US architects.
this building is no good. very un-true to its bones and materials. it is a pile of plywood, hollow, empty.
I heard that the pavilion is being donated to Chicago based artist Dan Peterman after it's Millennium Park life is up on October 31st. If that's the case, it would be great if he added the UNStudio structure or parts of it to the sculptural skateboard park Peterman designed and built just south of Millennium Park in Grant Park.
Interesting to compare to David Adjaye's 'Sclera' pavilion:http://www.ahec-europe.org/american-hardwood/case-studies/sclera-a-tulipwood-pavilion.html
That is a great image. I was wondering how they were actually going to build that structure. Thanks for posting.-Lucas Graywww.talkitect.com
