The Quadracci Pavilion
The white concrete structure that you see on the acrylic fridge magnet above is the Quadracci Pavilion established in the MAM. It is a beautiful structure that was designed by Santiago Calatrava and the Graef engineering firm administered its establishment with the help of C. G. Schmidt who served as the construction manager of the establishment of the pavilion. The pavilion consists of portable brise soleil that stays open in the daytime and is folded during the night or in times of unpleasant weather. It is one of the major attractions of the MAM.
