Milwaukee County War Memorial

Architects Visit WMC

Calatrava/Saarinen

The War Memorial Center welcomed 40 architects and architecture students from Taiwan on October 28, 2017.

Milwaukee Art Museum docents Jonas Karvelis and Gillian Kemper prepared an integrated WMC/MAM tour that focused on the evolution of both projects and touched on MAM Quadracci Pavilion architect Santiago Calatrava‘s respect for WMC architect Eero Saarinen and how he paid homage to Saarinen in his own structure.

The group visited WMC as part of its two-week tour, U.S. Modern Architecture, with stops in New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Racine, Milwaukee and Chicago.
