Calatrava's Milwaukee masterpiece

Milwaukee view map

Santiago Calatrava is one of my favorite architects now. Born in Spain, Calatrava’s entry into high-rise design began with an innovative 54 storey high twisting tower, called Turning Torso (2005), located in Malmö, Sweden. Calatrava is currently designing the future train station - World Trade Center Transportation Hub - at Ground Zero in New York City. He is also designing the Chicago Spire, soon to be the tallest building in the American continent. Only the Burj Dubai will be taller.
His buildings are extensions of nature. This particular museum is built with wings that will open and flap during the day. What imagination!
