The Art Museum of the Milwaukee Art in the United States is known to the whole world for its unusual appearance and represents an amazing example of modern architecture. This memorable construction in all respects was built here in 2001 and has since become a symbol of the city. The building is constructed of a wide variety of materials: Concrete and glass, wood and marble. From a distance it looks like a huge white bird that opened its wide wings right above Lake Michigan.

Name

The "wings" of the museum open in the sun and fold at night and in cloudy weather. In the deployed state, their range is 66 m.

Name

The Milwaukee Art Museum was the first work of Santiago Calatrava in the US, which brought him fame in North America.

The Quadracci Pavilion in 2004 received the Outstanding Structure Award from the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering for its unique architecture. The museum collection is located on four floors and includes works of art from antiquity to the present day.

Name

The history of the art museum in this American city, located in Wisconsin, began as early as 1882, but the museum for a long time did not have its own building. The current main building was built in 1957 - this is the Memorial Military Center. But that building, which so impresses all the guests of Milwaukee, appeared much later. In 2001, the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava was added to the architectural complex of the museum the Quadracci pavilion, which immediately became one of the most famous museum buildings in the world.

Name

The unusuality of the pavilion lies in the fact that Kalatrava provided it with so-called "wings", called "Brise Soleil" (Brise Soleil). The dynamic design is ideally combined with surrounding landscapes, becoming a single whole with both the city and the lake Michigan, on which the building of the Museum of Art is located.

Name

The pavilion was awarded a number of awards, not only architectural. So, according to the results of a survey of one of the portals, the Quadracci pavilion received the honorary title of "the sexiest building" in the world.

Name

I was fortunate enough to visit Milwaukee several times in 10 years, in 2006, in 2009 and in 2013 years. And every time I with great interest, at different times of the year, was shocked by the magnificent, impressive architecture created by the most talented architect of our time Santiago Calatrava. The pictures are made by FUDJI and NIKON cameras with a tripod and without. The minimum of necessary editing in Photoshop.

Name

Enjoy the art of real architecture! Frozen music ....
