Coordinated with international Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto and UWM Associate Professor Mo Zell, this design/build studio transformed material into architecture, engaging the user in defining space. Students designed a temporary brick installation for downtown Milwaukee. The installation emphasized fundamental issues of how people interact with architecture, while transforming a massive material like brick into something appearing lightweight and ephemeral. Capitalizing on the history of brick manufacturing in the region, the brick unit was sourced locally. For the summer of 2014, the installation converted an unused lot into a park, drawing visitors in to engage with the structure.
