I find structures like the new addition to the the Milwaukee Art Museum so fascinating.  The combination of harsh lines and solid rectangular shapes with the floor to ceiling glass atrium and metal facade is so…well, so damn cool.  Buildings like this just beg to be photographed! Who am I to  ignore what the building wants?

Completed in November of 2015,  the $34 million James Shields designed addition provides 30,000 square feet of additional space for art.  The building includes an new atrium and a new lakefront facing visitor entrance.  It was designed to compliment the existing  Calatrava and Kahler structures on site.
