Millennium Park's wanna-Beans

Blair Kamin has news of Millennium Park's upcoming Burnham celebration pavilions, including one by starchitect Zahah Hadid, pictured, which will show "video art about the Chicago area’s past and future projected on fabric walls."

Kamin suggests that they will invite nicknames, such as "The Arrowhead." I hereby dub Hadid's creation "Cinema Dentata."

Favorite quote, re the second pavilion: “We make a canopy with a quality of being more than a canopy,” Van Berkel said in a telephone interview Tuesday from Amsterdam. I think it looks like a carport designed by Apple.
