La Dallman Architects. Macarthur Square hybrids. Milwaukee. United States

The City Beautiful movement came about at the end of the 19th century in the United States to beautify the cities around the country. Its goal was not simply to be beautiful but to be a social control mechanism, to promote civic morals and harmonious social order and to improve the lives of citizens. Macarthur Square was devised inside this context and brings together a large number of public institutions around a large green space over an underground car park. The space does not currently have the same function as was planned and citizens hardly ever visit. In response to this failure, the project proposes a programmatic reactivation with public services in the neighbourhood and houses to complement the heavy institutional load on the location, as well as a new circulation system which connects it to parking areas.
