Santiago Calatrava - The Quadracci Pavilion

Tucked away in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is one of the most beautifully avant garde buildings I have ever seen. The Milwaukee Art Museum. It was completed in 2001 and designed by spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.

The dynamic form, massive size and innovative structure are just the beginning. Calatrava designed the building to be a moving work of art. The 90 ton, 217 foot wings adorning the outside of the edifice, The Burke Brise Soleil, actually move... amazing.
