A Discussion on The Relationship between People & Architecture
UWM Studio 320 in conjunction with ZIP MKE

Most, though not all, architecture is made for people, so it is our goal in this studio to interrogate the active and passive relationships between architecture and people to see how we might be able to generate contemporary architectural products and sensibilities and respond to a diverse and expansive population with a range of perspectives, needs, and desires.

A specially curated exhibit from the ZIP MKE archive of 100 Milwaukee photos highlighting residents, architecture, and the relationship between the two in the 53208 zip code.

Exhibit will be available for viewing on Gallery Night and on Gallery Day from 10am – 4 pm, with a special panel discussion and Q&A with Allyson Nemec (Principal Architect at Quorum Architects), Bobby Tanzilo (Senior Editor/Writer at OnMilwaukee), and Karl Herschede (local architecture/landscape photographer) to begin at noon.
