Project365: Day 3 - Des Moines Art Center

I would say that this is one of my favorite buildings in Des Moines, but that wouldn't be true. This is, in fact, THREE of my favorite buildings.

The original Art Center building (pictured) was designed by Eliel Saarinen and completed in 1948. The second wing (boxy concrete, south side of museum) was designed by I.M. Pei and completed in 1968. The third and final wing (porcelain, granite, and metal) was designed by Richard Meier and completed in 1985.
