Mitchell Domes (Part I)...Outside...

A few weeks back I was in Milwaukee for the very cold Presidents Day weekend, and to alleviate the low single digit temps, we stopped by the Mitchell Park Conservatory (The Domes) to warm up. Today I am posting a few images taken from the outside of The Domes. Completed in 1967, the architecture is classic Mid-Century Googie Architecture.

Looking at the trees and plant life inside the domes makes me think of Biosphere 2, that weird experiment in the Arizona Desert from the early 90s.

We were there before it closed for the day, so by the time we were leaving, the place was almost desolate.
