The BP Bridge

The BP Pedestrian Bridge, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, spans Columbus Drive to connect Daley Bicentennial Plaza with Millennium Park, both parts of the larger Grant Park in Chicago. Clad in brushed stainless steel plates the bridge’s sheen changes throughout the day as the sun travels across the sky and serves as a noise barrier for traffic sounds from Columbus Drive.
