In 2001, the Milwaukee Art Museum in Wisconsin in the United States opened a new wing called the Quadracci Pavilion. Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the 142,000 square-foot wing included 10,000 square feet of temporary or rotating exhibition space, gallerias (circulation space where sculptures are also displayed), a gift shop, a cafe, a restaurant, a boardroom, restrooms, coat checks, a heated parking garage, and Wendover Hall, an open reception area that is rentable for weddings and other events.
