The Milwaukee Art Museum Addition is an architectural and engineering masterpiece. The complex building includes unusual shapes of concrete and steel, cantilevered concrete canopies that stretch the limits of the material, and a unique cable-stayed bridge. Its signature feature is 110-ton moveable winged roof, whose 66 m wingspan opens and closes on top of a pavilion of steel and glass, all in a little over 3 minutes.
The “wings” of the building open at morning in accordance with regular days of operation, close/reopen at noon, and close at evening.
