Mylayne Pavilion Millennium Park

Via a rare joint collaboration by The Arts Club of Chicago and the Art Institute of Chicago, WKA has been commissioned to design a temporary pavilion within Millennium Park to operate from April-October of 2015, concurrent with the Chicago Architecture Beinnial. Located at the southeast corner of Lurie Garden, the opaque plastered mass opens daily via thick “L” shaped doors to anterooms sheltering a darkened interior space. This up-lit room provides the famed French photographers Jean-Luc and Mylene Mylayne long time goal to house “No# C 16, Avril 1987”  in its own chapel. The Pavilion coincides with major exhibitions by the photographers at both institutions.
