“Urban planning is at the forefront of local and global initiatives that aim to build economically prosperous, technologically smart, environmentally sustainable and socially just cities,” explains Urban Planning Professor and Chairwoman Ivy Hu. “With its beautiful natural environment, vibrant local communities, and legendary industrial assets, Milwaukee is a perfect laboratory that inspires and tests new planning ideas.”

“This spring marks the fiftieth anniversary of our program and we’re preparing to welcome hundreds of visitors to the school to help us celebrate and reflect on this milestone,” adds Department of Architecture Chairwoman Mo Zell. “But the most important visitors in any year are our future students. This day is really about giving them a chance to survey the school and our programs from the inside out. Architects are known for their attention to detail and we know that architecture students also pay attention to the big picture and to programmatic details. We’ve planned a day that we hope captures it all.”
