Inglorious Basterds!

After leaving Denver we headed to Des Moines (Iowa) where we visited the Art Museum (done in three times by Eliel Saarinen, I. M. Pei and Richard Meier), 2 buildings by Mies van der Rohe and a beautiful library designed by David Chipperfield...
After the last visit we leaved Des Moines for Iowa City, where we arrived in the evening. Here we went to te cinema to see "Inglorious Basterds": a fantastic movie! Quentin Tarantino is a genius! The only thing we are perplexed about is the last chapter... We don't want to ruin the film to you so we don't tell you more...

Today we visited Iowa City University, where we've seen a building by Frank O. Gehry and the Art Museum by Steven Holl (unfortunately the museum was ruined by a flow in 2008 and seems far to return in the "normal mode").
We headed to Cedar Rapids where we looked 2 buildings designed by Louis Sullivan in the 1911-1914 and, in Independence, a wonderful house by Frank Lloyd Wright: the Walter House (or Cedar Rock)... Simply perfect!

now we are in Madison, Wisconsin, ready to go visiting Taliesin.
