What people are saying:

Cloud Gate is a public art sculpture by an Indian-born British artist, r, in Chicago's Millennium Park. It was built between 2004 and 2006 because of its pod shape, nicknamed "pod." The sculpture is welded together by 168 stainless steel plates, and it is polished below the surface and can not see the seams. The size is 10 meters X20 meters X13 meters, weighing 100 tons. Kapoor's design was inspired by liquid helium, which reflects and distorts the city's outline. Visitors can walk under the 4-meter-high arch of the Cloud Gate.
