Harris Theater at Millennium Park – Patron Area Expansion

Since the Harris’s opening to the present day, a changing downtown and the burgeoning popularity of its programming suggested new opportunities for engaging audiences outside of the auditorium space. Evolving use patterns and a desire for informal performances led to this expansion of patron spaces below street level and the addition of new, high-capacity elevators; together enlivening the experience of the theater before, during and after headline events.
