detail – Cloud Gate ( 2006) by Anish Kapoor

Millenium ParkChicago

 

The tall building behind Cloud Gate is Willoughby Tower built in 1929.

 

Locals began calling it The Bean pretty early on. But the name it was given by its creator, Anish Kapoor was the slightly more poetic, Cloud Gate.

It’s made of 168 polished plates of stainless steel and is 33 feet high, 66 feet long and 42 feet wide.

Completed in 2006.

I made these images in 2007
