Renzo Piano's Modern Wing for the Art Institute continues its progression to completion, as we can see below. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
Here is the North-facing facade of the building along Jackson Boulevard, complete with fashion-forward tourists.
And here we can see the facade head on. Frank Gehry's stainless-steel sails from the Pritzker Pavilion are reflected in the middle-tier windows.
The Nichols Bridgeway, which will connect Millennium Park to the Institute's Modern Wing, is still very much in progress, but I'm fairly certain it will rise at roughly the angle I drew below.
And will connect to the Art Institute where the red arrow is pointing. (Helpful orientation of Orchestra Hall written on the picture by a child, apparently, for those of you who need it.)
When it's completed, the view will be something spectacular through those glass windows, several stories above this shot, but looking in the same direction.
