On Sunday, May 22nd, my picks for the best historic (pre-WWII) iconic structures in North American cities were listed. Today’s list is of those from the modern (post-WWII) era. Forthcoming will be a post listing my favorite future iconic structures in North American Cities to complete the trilogy. Enjoy!
The Milwaukee art museum is my favorite interior. STUNNING!!!
The bean is the most successful piece of public art in my opinion, not because of it’s appearance but of how it inspires people to interact with it. Brilliant!!! Also, in Millenium Park, the water sculpture, they bring together people of all walks of life in a positive way.
Thanks, Daunn. I really like both of them too. Never heard of Cloud Gate called the bean, but it sure fits. : )
Beautiful! Most of those I’d never seen before. Thanks for the guided tour.
You are welcome, Jane.
