Menomonee Valley Partners host 2018 Menomonee Valley Design Charette
January 19 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
On Wednesday, Jan. 31, Menomonee Valley Partners host its annual Menomonee Valley Design Charette at UWM School of Architecture & Urban Planning, 2131 E. Hartford Ave., from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free, but registration is required.
charette is a full day planning session where designers and stakeholders work together to envision the future of a space. It provides a forum for ideas and offers the unique advantage of giving immediate feedback to the designers. The Menomonee Valley design Charette involves six sites – five vacant or underutilized riverfront sites and St. Paul Avenue’s streetscape. Six outstanding local architecture firms have been matched to one of the sites. Using the Valley 2.0 Plan, extensive research, and focus group discussions, they are tasked with creating professional development concepts for their site.
