Newer Older

Gaviidae Common is an upscale shopping mall and office complex in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota - located along Nicollet Mall next to the IDS Center. This picture was taken behind a sculpture of a Loon that also acts as a water fountain in warmer weather.

More than you probably want to know:
Gaviidae Common was created in 1989 by amazing architect Cesar Pelli who also designed the Wells Fargo Center and Minneapolis Public Library buildings just down the street.

The name 'Gaviidae Common' is a clever reference to our state bird; Minnesota's State bird is the Great Northern Loon that's also known as the 'Common' Loon - the word 'Gaviidae' is the biological classification family name to which all species of Loons belong.
