Guthrie Theater

I visited the Guthrie Theater today with my parents and grandparents. The building includes some interesting architecture.

There are large windows with great views of the city.

They're also reflective to give you different perspectives to look at.

On the ninth floor of the theater is a room called The Amber Room. All of the windows have a yellow tint. The architect wanted to create a happy space. He thought about how he was happiest when he was skiing, so he had the windows colored the same as ski goggles.
