Please feel free to comment on this rendering or pass it along to a friend. What do you think about a design like this Milwaukee?
(See post one to compare the rendering and add comments!)

WOW! To compare part two and part one of these UWM Fresh water posts really makes this seem possible. Is that the design they will use? It’s the only one that I have seen.

Thanks spirit of the lake!
The design was actually created by a member of Greener Milwaukee, Carl Cummings. It certainly has a resemblance to the Marina Barrage in Singapore for the first UWM post doesn’t it. However the our roof will be a public spectacle, if not an amenity AND a green roof. IMHO I think if both solar panels, a green roof walkway, and powerful residential wind turbines would resonate through architectural circles and really make waves.
There will be more rendering released at a later time, but thanks for your interest and support. I think it’s likely that if we pass ideas Milwaukeeans think of FOR Milwaukee, we’ll get people excited about this spot & help put Milwaukee back on the map as a beverage capital of the world. The Fresh Water capital, that is. Thx 😉
