Mapping Minnesota's History of Bold Architecture and Design

As part of the celebrations for its 75th anniversary as a public art institution, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis is honoring notable works of Minnesotan design that are outside the confines of a physical museum campus—which, in its case, includes a striking aluminum-clad structure by Herzog & de Meuron and is now embarking on a $75M renovation. The museum's new web feature, "Minnesota by Design," documents and maps some 100 "uncollectable" examples of inventive design across the state and throughout history, sampling buildings, landscapes, products, graphics, and more.

This "virtual collection," which can be filtered by discipline, aims to "increase public awareness of the human-built world in Minnesota." Here are a few examples of works included—check out the full feature this way.
