Picturing Milwaukee: Washington Park Neighborhood
Jared Schmitz and Arijit Sen
The Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures collaborative project at UW Milwaukee and Madison introduces an interdisciplinary research track concentrating on the examination of the physical, cultural, and social aspects of our built environment. The program serves students enrolled in the UW Milwaukee and Madison campuses respectively. It involves faculty members on both campuses with diverse research and teaching interests, including urban and architectural history, cultural landscapes, urban and rural vernacular architecture, public history, and environmental history. The 2015 Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures field school examines a complex urban edge where a bucolic Olmstedian park meets the residential neighborhood of Martin Drive and a 19th Century industrial corridor housing Harley Davidson Motor Company and Miller Brewery intersects a once vibrant Vliet Street.

Building Bridges, Blurring Boundaries: The Milwaukee School in Environment-Behavior Studies
Sherry Ahrentzen, Carole Després, and Brian Schermer
Along with the 40th anniversary of the School of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the 30th anniversary of our Ph.D. Program in Architecture represents another important benchmark in educational excellence. As one of the pioneering PhD programs in architecture dedicated to understanding the relationship between people and place, its influence has been considerable. Its 51 (and counting) graduates teach in architectural design and allied fields at major institutes and practice throughout the world. Their intellectual contributions, and those of the faculty, continue to shape Environment-Behavior Studies and the discipline of architecture as a whole. This book, a tribute to the many excellent students who have shared the Milwaukee experience, is a testament to their collective input for the design of settings for health care, education, the workplace, older people, and communities, and their insights about the role well-designed environments contribute to the quality of people’s lives.

Cynthia Anderson, Nathan Waddell, Chelsea Wait, and Arijit Sen

Built Work with HGA Architects
James W. Shields, Sebastian Schmaling, and Robert Greenstreet
In some schools, faculty, who have to meet the academic requirement of the institution to achieve tenure and promotion, can be effectively supplemented with highly skilled local practitioners who are dealing on a daily basis with design and construction issues. In some happy instances, there are individuals who can straddle the two worlds and bring a balanced view of design excellence. Such an individual is Jim Shields. His classes and studios are models of clarity and insight and are highly sought by his students. His undisputed role as one of the most talented architects in the Midwest, as evidenced by the rich array of work in this monograph, brings huge value to University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning.
