Quadracci Pavilion (The Milwaukee Art Museum) by 


718 Views 4/28/13.

The beautiful “Quadracci Pavilion” (The Milwaukee Art Museum) is 142,050 square feet.
Is a graceful sculptural, postmodern addition designed by Spanish architect Santiago calatrava.
Highlights of the building are the magnificent cathedral-like space of “Windhover Hall” with a vaulted 90’ high glass ceiling; the “Burke Brise Soleil” a movable sunscreen with a 217 foot wingspan that unfolds and folds twice daily, and the "Reiman Bridge; a pedestrian suspension bridge that connects the museum to the city of Milwaukee.
The structure incorporates cutting-edge technology and old world craftsmanship. The city of Milwaukee has a strong craft tradition.

If you are ever in the Milwaukee Wisconsin area, this is a must see. It is located right on beautiful Lake Michigan. A most magnificent area.

I’m dedicating this one to my son Brent, who took me to this beautiful place yesterday!

    Our beautiful museum…great shot…I live 2 blocks from the museum, so I go there often!!!
    Did you see the inside???

  • Thanks so much Dawn. Yes, it’s very beautiful and no I didn’t get inside this time. My son let me out & he drove around looking for a parking spot.
    I thought I remember you saying you lived on the East side, that’s really a beautiful area, on the lake and all!
