The Milwaukee Public Museum is considering more than 10 sites in and around downtown Milwaukee for its new home, MPM President and CEO Dennis Kois said.
The museum plans to move from its current county-owned building at 800 W. Wells St. to a new $100 million or more building within the next decade. Kois is hoping to break ground on the project by 2022.
On Friday, the MPM released two concepts. The first designed by Milwaukee-based Rinka Chung Architecture of a museum in downtown Milwaukee. The second, by Milwaukee-based firm Zimmerman Architectural Studios of a museum at the lakefront.
Design concepts were also developed by major museum design firms across the country including Washington D.C.-and Singapore-based Gallagher & Associates, Chicago-based Luci Creative, New York City-based Local Projects, and Brooklyn-based Peter Hyde Design.
