Frank Gehry’s BP Pedestrian Bridge in Millennium Park, Chicago

The infamous Frank Gehry strikes with his latest creation and first bridge design ever, the BP Pedestrian Bridge near the Pritzker Pavilion, connecting Millennium Park to Daley Bicentennial Plaza, east of the park, this 280 meters-long (925 feet) winding bridge provides incomparable views of the Chicago skyline, Grant Park and Lake Michigan. Clad in brushed stainless steel panels, the BP Bridge adds to the Pritzker Pavilion in function as well as design by creating an acoustic barrier from the traffic noise of the streets beyond. It also has a 5% slope to allow easy access for people who are physically challenged.
