When it’s hot in downtown Minneapolis, the skyways are the place to be. You can walk for miles in air-conditioned comfort, wrapped in the cool glass-and-steel ambiance of the 70s and 80s. Seen from a skyway, the buildings seem taller, the streets distant. It’s quieter up here – you can think. The sun streams in, but it’s friendly and upbeat.
This skyway crosses over 7th Street , connecting IDS Center and Gaviidae Common. A fisheye lens takes it all in, connects the sky and the street, and warps a Midwestern city into the cover of a vintage sci-fi paperback.
