Together with the Milwaukee Public Museum, Ennead Architects and Kahler Slater today unveiled the design for the new 200,000 sqft museum building, set on a 2.4 acre site in the burgeoning Haymarket neighborhood of Milwaukee. Four core principles influenced the design – community, nature, education, and the preservation of the museum’s vast collections. The new building is slated to break ground in late 2023 and open in 2026.

The brief for Haas Valley Farm was to design a weekend getaway for a Chicago area family on property that has been in their extended family for generations. Tall and thin, the Haas Valley Farm Residence perches on its site which is centered in the Driftless Area, a small pocket of the Midwest so named because the glaciers skipped over the region, leaving a surprising landscape of rolling hills and deep valleys bisected by the Mississippi River.

The proposal for the Cold War Veterans Memorial International Competition, by the Pritzker Foundation. Even though the project could not make it to the shortlist; the design studio reckon the entry as a significant work in the studio’s oeuvre, as the proposal successfully translates a difficult & abstract idea into an absorbing experiential architecture.
