Milwaukee Public Museum & Brinn name design & build partners for new facility

The Milwaukee Public Museum has announced a lineup of partners that will help design and build the new museum, which will be located on the northeast corner of 6th Street and McKinley Boulevard in the Park East corridor.

The building will also house a new Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, and its site was announced in September.

The team will include Thinc Design and Ennead Architects – both based in New York – Minneapolis-based Mortenson, and Milwaukee’s Kahler Slater and ALLCON.

Thinc will be tapped to develop exhibitions that meld technology and the diorama style exhibits for which MPM has long been known.

Ennead Architects and Kahler Slater will collaborate on the 230,000-square-foot building’s architecture, and Mortenson will work with the local, woman-owned ALLCON on the construction of that design.

“As designing and building a new museum will have national and global significance and will be a point of pride for Wisconsinites for generations to come, we searched for the best talent both locally and globally,” said Dr. Ellen Censky, president & CEO of the Milwaukee Public Museum, in a statement issued Thursday.
