In the last post I shared some images of the pedestrian bridge which connects the Milwaukee Art Museum to downtown Milwaukee. Today we’re moving inside for some abstracts of all those wonderful lines and curves that make up the Quadracci Pavilion.
First up, the lines of the grand entrance hall which is called Windhover Hall. The flying buttresses, pointed arches, ribbed vaults, and a central nave make up this space which is Santiago Calatrava’s postmodern interpretation of a Gothic Cathedral. The center of this space tops out with a 90-foot glass ceiling.
The next few shots are of the two arched promenades, the Baumgartner (east) Galleria and Schroeder Foundation (west) Galleria, that extend north off the main hall.
One final image of the parking garage, because even that is phenomenally designed!
There are a few other images from the day and past visits in this link here.
