Wisconsin Architecture

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Wisconsin Buildings, USA. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Wisconsin buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the state. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

Brittlebush
Brittlebush was developed as a design-build experience for Simón De Agüero, graduate student, designer, and project manager. The design is an experimental desert dwelling for winter residents at Taliesin, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Simón envisioned the design to be an open-air living space with protective roof and walls for the sleeping area.
