Ah - I wondered if that was the one you meant. It's just north of 
Loring Park ... I've never thought about what building it is, but it 
could be the rightmost one here, which is the Hyett hotel: 
http://www.phototour.minneapolis.mn.us/2259 - or it could be off the 
picture to the right.

They put up steady red white and blue lights shortly after 9/11/2001, 
which most people I know thought was a bit excessive - I mean what if 
everyone did that? It was then all white lights for a while, then they 
implemented the morphing thing.

Driving into Minneapolis from the North on 94 during a good sunset is 
breathtaking: you can see the sunset reflected in the glass. I've never 
seen a photo of that.
