last weekend I was in milwaukee for a wedding. luckily the city's art museum was within walking distance from our hotel. designed by santiago calatrava, the museum's pavilion looks like a huge sail boat docked on the shore of lake michigan. in order to gain access to the upper most "deck" you must walk across a bridge that is suspended over one of the cities major roadways. personally this added to my feeling that I was about to board a grand ship. I found entering this structure in this way quite thrilling. once inside I found the interior equally wondrous. check out the view of lake michigan from the inside of the art museum.
