Peoples Gas Education Pavilion at Lincoln Park Zoo

Peoples Gas Education Pavilion at Lincoln Park Zoo

Peoples Gas Education Pavilion is one of my favorite structures to photograph in Chicago.

The pavilion functions as a covered outdoor program space for children and adults who visit the South Pond Nature Preserve. It was completed in 2010 by Studio Gang, the world-renowned Chicago architecture firm led by Jeanne Gang. It is built from prefabricated glue-laminated timber “ribs” and fiberglass domes.

Photographing the pavilion

I planned a trip down to Lincoln Park specifically to spend an hour photographing the pavilion. There are so many angles and interesting ways that the light weaves in and out of the curves that you can find as you walk around.

If you’re ever in the Lincoln Park area definitely make the time to explore this spot. There are also some amazing views of the Chicago skyline from here.

Taking the time to really study something is a great way to create unique images. If you feel yourself compelled to add one of these to your own art collection, just click on the image and pop it in your shopping cart.

Thank you Tamron

I’d also like to share this article from Tamron USA. They contacted me a little while ago to ask me if I would be interested in talking about and sharing images I’ve created with my Tamron 100-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens. I use that lens in most of my architectural detail photos.
