Designer of Milwaukee Art Museum can't attend 10th anniversary, medical problems

by

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - The man who helped transform and modernize Milwaukee’s lakefront skyline will not be around to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his creation.

Santiago Calatrava was scheduled to speak at a private gala on September 10th for those who contributed to the building. But he canceled his appearance due to a personal emergency.

Calatrava designed the big white wings that normally flap every day above the Milwaukee Art Museum.

USA Today has called it one of the five most important buildings of the 21st Century. And Reuters has called it the “sexiest building in the world.”

Among other things, the Calatrava addition was filmed in the movie “Transformers-Three.” It hosted a reception for Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game in 2002. And “American Idol” fans saw the building’s lakefront view when Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler held a preliminary judging session there.
