Exelon Pavilions: Millennium Park Welcome Center and Garage Entrances

The four Exelon Pavilions, which use state-of-the art technology to convert solar energy into electricity, are an integral part of Chicago's efforts to become the most environmentally-friendly city in North America. Together, the Pavilions provide enough electricity annually to power 14 star-rated energy-efficient houses in Chicago.

The northwest and northeast Pavilions are minimalist black cubes designed to complement the neighboring Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance. The northwest Pavilion houses the Millennium Park Welcome Center, as well as an Exelon energy display area. The northeast Pavilion provides access to the parking garage below.

The two Exelon Pavilions on the park's south end also provide access to the Millennium Park Garage, and were designed by architect Renzo Piano to complement The Art Institute's future expansion.
