Santiago Calatrava: Sculpture Into Architecture - I

After enjoying St. Louis’ beauty we headed towards Milwaukee to explore one of the best architectonic expressions of modern age - Milwaukee Art Museum. I always wanted to see this marvelous work designed by one of my favorite legend, Santiago Calatrava! and yes, ...this visit paid me more than what I have expected, you will get to see few glimpses of it over here, ...n yaah, gorgeous weather made it more pleasant and boosted our enthusiasm for the rest of the day trip...:)
