The Pritzker Music Pavilion designed by Architect Frank O. Gehry has become part of Chicago’s identity.  This state of the art facility was built to replace the Petrillo Music Shell in Grant Park.  In addition to the curved metal “ribbons” that form the most identifiable part of the Pavilion, the project included a curved metal trellis over the “great lawn”, a state of the art sound and lighting system, custom-designed curved wood bandshell, practice rooms and support spaces

Rodriguez and Associates were the Owner's Representative for this project, managing the entire process from award of the Contract to the General Contractor until closeout.  This was an extremely complex project that included design-build components (panel structure, 60-foot sliding glass doors, and control mix position movable structure) and many complex engineering and construction challenges.  All aspects of the management were the responsibility of Rodriguez and Associates, including coordination with the other aspects of Millennium Park which were managed by URS Corporation
