Photographer's Note

Chicago's new Frank Gehry's Millennium Park Bandshell dwarfed by highrises.

This 4,000 seat amphitheater with a lawn seating of 6,000 has a highly sculptured design element clad in stainless steel panels. It features an unparalleled acoustic system created by the Talaske Group, Inc. of Oak Park, IL. The first permanent outdoor installation of its kind in the United States, the new sound system features digitally processed "virtual architecture" and an open-air acoustical canopy to create a state-of-the-art sonic experience. It is the most sophisticated outdoor sound system of its type in the world.

This is Gehry's first building in Chicago.
