The Cloud Gate is also known as The Bean because it looks like a bean. It is located in Chicago"s Millennium Park. The sleek exterior of this sculpture reflects the distorted Chicago skyline, making it a popular photography spot for tourists in Chicago. Cloud Gate is known as a symbolic and innovative work.

    Chicago is the home of jazz, the birthplace of skyscrapers, the gathering place of modern art, delicate food, avant-garde drama and hard-core sports fans. Chicago inherits more American spirit and traditional culture, so it is also called "the most American" city. Architecture is the highlight of Chicago's tour. There is an unstoppable charm of a soybean seed. Located in Millennium Park on Lake Michigan, the cloud gate is an eye-catching, master-class, extraordinary public art. Cloud Gate is made of 68 perfectly polished stainless steel sheets, reflecting Chicago's unique urban landscape. I can't find any traces of splicing. Looking inside, there will be a strong sense of science fiction, as if it will be inhaled into the time tunnel.

    In Chicago's Millennium Park, there is a landmark and innovative sculpture, Cloud Gate, inspired by liquid mercury. When the statue was completed, both the public and the media called it "pod" because of the shape of its beans. Just walk down the gorgeous mile and down the south. There is no charge for parks.

    The famous Cloud Gate (CLOUD GATE) of Millennium Park is also called Bean (BEAN). The large oval, smooth appearance reflects the exterior high-rise buildings on the surface. The sculpture is more than 10 meters high, more than 20 meters long, nearly 13 meters wide and weighs about 110 tons. Cloud Gate is made of polished stainless steel without any decoration. It looks like a drop of mercury from a distance. It reflects various images at different times and from different angles throughout the year, which adds poetry to the city. There is a skating rink on the side of the road. Snowflakes were flying. A girl in a skirt was spinning on the ice. With jazz, passers-by and tourists hum and sway, and it's freezing, but it's vibrant. Under the beans, there are many tourists, looking at their distorted figure. This unique creative design makes the original monotonous appearance of beans, ever-changing, cold exclamation. Designer Anish Kapoor calls it "the gate to Chicago, which maps a poetic city. " On one side of the park, there are rectangular light boxes made up of LED lights, which are the faces of girls and women and blink their eyes. There's also a white head and three black heads. We visited Cloud Gate twice in three days in Chicago.

    Cloud Gate, also known as "Silver Bean", is located in Millennium Park, Chicago. It looks like a metal sculpture of a soybean. It is welded from 168 stainless steel plates, but its surface is smooth and there is no seam. The smooth Cloud Gate reflects the blue sky and white clouds. It maps the beautiful buildings and skylines of Chicago from different angles like curved mirrors, forming a unique and amazing picture.

    Near the Great Lakes, a landmark of Millennium Park. From the airport there is a subway link, convenient transportation. It's a free and open attraction. The free WIFI signal around it is very good. The shape is novel, and the smooth surface reflects the image of life in all its forms; the shape of an oil drop in Karamay is probably based on it.

    Located in Millennium Park in Chicago, Cloud Gate is a huge metal sculpture similar to mercury. It looks like a huge bean, so it is also called soybean. Because of the silvery reflection of the sculpture, the beautiful buildings and skylines of Chicago are mirrored from different angles. Visitors can also find their own figures on them. This is one of the most crowded places in Chicago, where almost everyone plays with self-portraits.
