Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee — The Burke Brise Soleil is the moveable, wing-like sun screen that rests on top of the Museum’s vaulted, glass-enclosed reception hall. The Brise Soleil, unprecedented in American architecture, is the signature element of the Museum’s new 142,050-square-foot Quadracci Pavilion.

The Brise Soleil opens when the Museum opens and closes when the Museum closes at The Brise Soleil may stay open later some days due to special events. The “wings” also “flap” (close and open) each day at noon for visitors’ enjoyment. 

With fin size ranging in length from 26 to 105 feet, the Brise Soleil wingspan spreads 217 feet at its widest point, wider than a Boeing 747-400 airplane, and weighs 90 tons. The Burke Brise Soleil’s design is also unique among the moveable structures Calatrava has created in Europe.
