Windhover (Grand) Reception Hall of the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) designed by Spanish architect, Santiago Calatrava. The Quadracci Pavilion of the MAM, is the first Calatrava-designed building in the United States, and features a 90-foot high glass-walled reception hall enclosed by the Burke Brise Soleil, a wing-like sunscreen that can be raised or lowered creating a unique moving sculpture. Time magazine named the museum as Best Design of 2001. This reception hall has magnificent views of Lake Michigan.

What a smoothly modern building, the curves come together really well with the sharp angles. The sharp clean lighting of the building softened by the near silhouettes of the people brings the shot together well.

This is a beautiful display of modern architecture well captured. The people in the photo really give a sense of size to the building.
ps It is good to see you still active on Trekearth. My recent purchase of a new convenient camera to carry has brought me back, and has inspired me to always be on the lookout for a picture that might be worthy of posting.
