Minneapolis Architecture: A Year in Review

Linda Mack of the Star Tribune reflects on the building boom in Minneapolis in 2003 that seems to have produced more cultural landmarks than office buildings.

"Construction cranes punctuate the Minneapolis skyline, but they aren't building office towers: They're erecting cultural landmarks." Projects highlighted include "a new Guthrie Theater, a new downtown library, an addition to Walker Art Center and extensions to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Children's Theatre Company." "By 2006, these projects -- along with the Mill City Museum, which opened this fall on the Mississippi riverfront -- will have transformed the Twin Cities landscape."
