Kern Park Elementary School & Recreation Center Located on the west bank of the Milwaukee River, Kern Park Elementary School and Recreation Center represents the surrounding community and their utmost dedication of continually spreading knowledge and making education the forefront of endeavors. Open space meant cleaner air, healthier activities, and more accessible nature when the urban core began to spread away from the port on Michigan. For this, space just north of downtown was set aside by the Kern family in a neighborhood now named Riverwest. Once housing as a tuberculosis center, Kern Park became the epicenter for research and scientific activities. For encapsulating the core values of today’s contemporary yet powerful sustainable movement, science is finally encroaching a new wave of thought. The school, on which the smooth form encircles the main space to place emphasis on bright and open outdoor activities, is built to emulate new technologies and ideal architectural theory. From all indoor class-

rooms, hallways, and gathering spaces accentuate the creative natural world to be a part of the larger space rather than be suppressed away from it. By etching into the landscape thousands of years of erosion push to the river below and form the great valley the park sits upon. When the school moves towards the riverbanks, students wind down the hallway as they slope ever so slightly downwards to the bottom of the hill. By following the natural curves of the Milwaukee River valley the occupants are coerced into becoming one with the land rather than making it unnaturally fit to other conditioning standards. The use in technological advancements of green infrastructure the community begins to be a part of the bigger picture of sustained human growth and consumption. With hands-on stormwater management that helps feed the replanting of natural prairies around the park for wildlife stabilization, science and art are weaved together to make our built world beautifully dynamic again.

Idealistic Cities Kadish Park Museum

22


Public space must not only be outdoors, but also in. By building a place to gather that is inherently representative of everyone is humanly fundamental to our diversifying communities. A place where beautiful oil paintings are adjacent to art classrooms. Where professionals are at the same company as students, amateurs, or anyone in between. To breathe the same clean air and see the same sites for those identifying as different is crucial to a thriving and accepting community. As citizens of Milwaukee, we are one people dedicated to the place we live, allowing us to thrive.

A museum is carved into the earthen walls of Kadish Park due east of Lloyd and Booth. While opposing forward towards the city center to the south it extrudes itself to become visible from the valley below. By looking to the valley it is as if a text is describing Milwaukee’s history—with the beer-making corridors, the mid-century circular high-rises, to the banks buying our growing skyline—each piece tells the story of who Milwaukee is and not only how we became what we are today, but rather what we can become and how we can keep changing for the better, together.

Downer Woods Residence Hall Dormitor y & Lecture Hall

Public space knitted within private development is one of the most crucial aspects of what we can do to connect differing values, beliefs, and lifestyles of the people around us today. By interlocking pathways with interconnecting movements of space and time we can all come together where dialog can begin in a humane and fundamentally inviting space. Dormitories in particular are bridges in life. For many recent secondary school graduates before this moment in their life home is still home and school is still just school. To build a safety net, all without walls, to define a place that

resonates the neighborhood while becoming its own part. To become a zone for intellectual upbringing rather than a space that is unbroken by exhausted students, where things begin to move and people begin to grow from others. Why we build plazas and open spaces between our private homes is for the enjoyment of life. To bring ourselves into the wild and experience the great newness that is, in this case, a dormitory and university. The trees from next door canopy over your berry bushes or delicate furniture below, property lines are invisible to the occupier as we build closer and more intimately.

Innovation Alley at Marquette University

Innovation Alley is an idea emboldened by Marquette University to build the future of the institution where all people gather to learn, evolve, and discover. Erecting the new business school to the south and engineering to the north, the two will be interwoven via grand lobby spaces and exaggerated corridors. With laboratories, studios, offices, and classrooms above, each component will join together in the center with an oasis for teachers and students to intermingle. Based on Marquette’s private institutional beliefs, water and light are symbols for the divine and powerful—as if nature is being consumed by us positively, thought of as a tool to become one again with an individual’s spirituality. An interpretive dance on a site larger than a normative city block, Innovation Alley expands the southern superblock of main campus to the west, grabbing part of the neighborhood and integrating the city back into their grounds like it was before. By carving away the center of the site while pushing the building masses to the

edge, not only does the city become more vibrant with a more urban feel, occupiers can intermingle under a covered atrium to go across the once baron site. Like the bluff Marquette is established on, the building slowly pushes downward, breaking apart ever so slightly to perforate instinctive passageways. Unlike the thoroughfare dominating the southern and eastern part of campus, the unconstituted masses disallow for direct penetration. While it is easy to walk in a straight line, we as humans are wanderers and learn from differing landscapes around us. From climbing up stairs, ramps, experiencing multiple floor textures, even different floral and fauna beside us, the body reacts to the systems by inherently moving side to side, searching for what the next bend will take us to. The strange, the uncharted, the bizarre, it all brings us back to what the University is instituted for. Innovation Alley is the new beginning of what education can be.

Artificial recreation of the Great Lakes basin and their confined valleys and streams bordering them begin to blur the line between human and nature. The movement of the destructive water begins to form a new type of interaction between nature and the inhabitants of such a place. First, analyzing the concepts of traditional buildings and their utilitarian view on the system the roof is made for, pushing and pulling into a new form creates a new sense of how it performs. To carve and slice the masses of the buildings new spaces imerge because not only do interiors now have skewed spaces, but the space on which the roof points to inherently must act differently. In this case, sloping the multiple systems of roofs into the interior valley the solid masses of the building core push the movement of water and other minerals inwards and down to a larger, more wide system. The mountainous feel is taken from the height of the site, in a chaotic, steep, once unusable slope that cascades into a basin of calm and slow movements. Marquette University is no stranger to the fast pace of forward thinking, but as others come together in this new space there is even more opportunities for growth. The space within pushes open so people can gather and relax. The sharing of ideas begin the spread of intelectual thinking, with people coming together that wouldn’t normally do so.

35

The unique qualities of the environment around us is compelling and underestimated. What we can do by emulating the past and present of nature to build a sustained and enjoyable future is endless.
