I do know that his buildings often look like white exoskeletons of birds or other things, and I usually like his stuff. Well, the Museum of Tomorrow is gorgeous.

The front overhand provide much needed shade for the line. The line was impossible when we were there, since it hadn't been open a week yet, so we couldn't get in. The Museum is all about sustainability and features an opening of 3 eight minute movies in 3 theaters. This limits the ability to get people in. The movies, apparently, are all three in Portuguese, English and Spanish. So we wandered around the site and took pictures.
|This is the front overhand. You can see the big lines under the shade, and me (waving) at the end of the line, not in the shade yet.|

|This is the back of the building, a semi-mirror of the front. Only here (as on one side) it hovers over a reflecting pool. You can see the actual cruise ship in the background.|
|Eddie and I, at the back of the building. It is very pretty, it was very very hot.|
These are the two other Santiago Calatrava buildings Eddie and I have visited.

|The Path (New Jersey Subway System) at Ground Zero downtown. This is a model. The original is almost done. The wings are there, but they are not all white yet. It should be done this year.|
