After an extensive international search, the Milwaukee Public Museum announced the team that has been selected to bring the vision of its new museum to life in the coming years, as well as that of the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, which will be co-located on the site. Expert consultants chosen to design and oversee construction of the new museum include the teams at Ennead Architects, Kahler Slater, Thinc Design, Mortenson, and ALLCON.
“As designing and building a new museum will have national and global significance and will be a point of pride for Wisconsinites for generations to come, we searched for the best talent both locally and globally,” said Dr. Ellen Censky, President & CEO of the Milwaukee Public Museum. “We are thrilled with the group we’ve assembled and feel they will capture the interconnection of nature and culture through time and space using design as part of this exciting process.”
Ennead Architects and Kahler Slater will make up the architecture team, bringing together national and international expertise with local knowledge and creative ingenuity. “We are inspired to design an architecture for the museum that furthers the understanding of the profound relationship between nature and culture for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond. We are eager to engage local and regional communities to create an exciting, inspiring, accessible and sustainable public learning environment that is an authentic expression of its place and where science illuminates the stories of the past, present and future of our natural world,” said Design Partner Todd Schliemann of Ennead Architects, the Design Architect for the project.
