But we're supposed to be talking about architecture, not bridges, right? Let's start with The Steinmeyer Building which was constructed as a grocery store and warehouse in 1883 and is one of the many examples of Romanesque architecture in Milwaukee, evoking that medieval European feeling. Loved the lamp!
Another Romanesque beauty is Turner Hall, which I chose to shoot as a reflection in the building across the street. Sweet shot!
On the other side of the river stands the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Building, whose Art Moderne style emphasizes flat surfaces. Nothing flat about it, in my opinion, raised detail and curves abound!
Just to show I can mix things up a little, here's the building at 1000 North Water Street, also along the RiverWalk.
One more and I'll let you walk it for yourself when you come to town. The Milwaukee Repertory Theater ("The Rep") is in a power plant-converted location and houses the 720-seat Quadracci Powerhouse Theater, the 218-seat Stiemke Theater, and the 118-seat Stackner Cabaret. I thought it was cool because the plaque on the building said it was the location where pulverized coal was first burned continuously successfully. Power plant trivia kind of interests us, ya know, being a ComEd family.
What's that tower looming behind The Rep?? City Hall, we'll talk about it another day, I promise!
