Memorial UnionLeave a Comment
On this project, the architectural challenge was to bring the 82 year-old Wisconsin Memorial Union up to current design standards and student expectations without interfering with the building’s historical character and the sentimental attachments of its users and alumni. Through the years renovations to the building have been piecemeal, and time has taken its toll both in terms of systems and functionality. As so often happens as a building ages, new functions are fitted into any available space without regard to adjacencies or physical needs. These deficiencies all needed to be corrected.
