No other building material is more firmly embedded in the physical or psychological landscape of Milwaukee than Cream City brick. Once favored for their durability, the bricks show their vintage.  Since Cream City bricks are so porous they readily accept airborne contaminants which results in bricks with various colorations.  Found throughout town, these bricks bear a variety of patinas from a natural cream color, to a copper green and all the way to an almost black. From the patina one can speculate on the state of affairs in the historical past.  The discolored bricks index the past through their materiality.

This week Sou came to Milwaukee for the second of four visits. It was a really busy week. On Tuesday we went to IMI to look at a prototype for our pavilion. Thursday we spent the day in studio, talking through our design, and afterwards we all had Barbeque together at Mo’s house. Friday morning, we toured Norman Foster’s Fortazela Hall.  Sou’s visit culminated in the Marcus Prize Lecture and the gallery opening.  If you haven’t seen the gallery, Check it out, it will be up through March.
