People's Gas Pavilion
This organically sculpted pavilion is the artful centerpiece of Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo. Designed by visionary Chicago architect Jeanne Gang, who patterned its latticework dome after a turtle shell, it’s set on the shore of a restored pond ecosystem amid sweeping vistas of prairie plants and native wildlife, with the dramatic downtown skyline rising in the distance.
