Burnham Pavilion by Zaha Hadid Architects

Impressive project by Zaha Hadid Architects. The Burnham Pavilion opened recently in Millennium Park in Chicago, as part of the Burnham Plan Centennial celebrations. The pavilion is composed of an intricate curved aluminium structure, with fabric skins tightly zipped around the metal frame to create the curvilinear shape. The interior skin also serves as the screen for a video installation by thomas gray that explores Chicago’s past and future.

From the architects:

“The Burnham Pavilion by Zaha Hadid Architects triggers the visitors’ curiosity and encourages them to consider the future of Chicago. the design merges new formal concepts with the memory of burnham’s bold, historic urban planning. Superimpositions of spatial structures with hidden traces of burnham’s plan are overlaid and inscribed within the structure to create unexpected results.
