Divided Sunlight

Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 12 November 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

View of the interior ceiling in the main exhibition space of the Milwaukee Art Museum. The Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) gained international recognition with the construction of the white concrete Quadracci Pavilion, designed by Santiago Calatrava (his first completed project in the United States), which opened on May 4, 2001. The structure contains a movable, wing-like brise soleil which opens up for a wingspan of 217 feet during the day, folding over the tall, arched structure at night or during inclement weather. The brise soleil has since become a symbol for the city of Milwaukee.
