This architectural abstract of the Milwaukee Art Museum shows one of the two wings of the Burke Brise Soleil, a moveable sunscreen with a total wingspan of 217 feet. It folds over the spacious Windhover Hall at night and during inclement weather. Twice a day the wings are folded and then re-opened as sightseers watch. The Quadracci Pavilion, designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, was opened in 2001 as an addition to an existing building, which still houses the majority of the permanent collection of art. Its exterior and interior are equally fascinating. Copyright 2012 Ann Horn. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
