I N N E R H A R B OR B R E W E RY Milwaukee, WI

This is a project for a brewery to be located at the Grand Trunk site in Milwaukee’s Inner Harbor as a part of a larger project to redevelop the once industrial and now largely abandoned area of the city. The program includes: a large brewing area, banquet hall, and beer garden. The strategy of this design is to separate the industrial processes and work area from the formal banquet hall and retail area. This is done by creating two buildings that are linked together with by third canopy overhead. The canopy also serves as a cover for entry into the banquet hall as well as a gateway to the riverwalk. A smaller urban plaza by the street and hops field are also incorporated into the site.

The current site of the Downtown Milwaukee Transit Center is one that is being slated for demolition and future redevelopment. This project explores one of the possibilities of the potential of such a great site. The goal of the design is to create a connection between the downtown business district and the disconnected public lakefront. This design uses a land bridge to stretch across Lincoln Memorial Drive and take people from the level of the city to the level of the lake without having a major conflict between pedestrians and vehicles. A tower and museum buried into the plinth were also incorporated into this design, with the transit hub moving across the street onto an extended Clybourn Blvd.

CO M M U N I T Y COL L EGE L EC TURE HALL/THEATRE

This project explores the design of lecture hall or theatre performance space within a Community College at an abstract site. The theatre is at the lower level of a building, so from the plaza outside it appears that the space is just one story, but inside the space appears to be carved out of the ground. There is a ledge and railing that allow viewers to see lectures or performances from the plaza level. Special attention is paid to how panels are mounted to the walls and railing supports. Also, the way the walls meet the floor was developed to give a dominance to the paneling and its appearance to slip past the floor.

The Kern Park Elementary School is a project located in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood. The site is surrounded by single and multi family housing on Humboldt Ave. The Milwaukee River runs passed the site to the east. The design strategy uses two large circles to form a curved corridor that runs through the program similar to how the river runs through the city. The corridor becomes the connecting element between the other objects and brings in light. There is pathway that travels through the building allowing people to walk through but also keeping the school secure.
