The Bean

The Cloud Gate, or better known as ’The Bean’, is one of the largest permanent outdoor installations in the world. It is made of stainless steel and is polished to perfection so that there are no visible seams. It’s one of those things that is just cool to look at. You can see different parts of the skyline depending on where you stand.
