    • SARUP. Portfolio William Schmeling
    • Introduction SARUP. Portfolio is a document that exhibits a compilation of design projects worked on by William Schmeling while completing his Mas- ters of Architecture degree at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In the Table of Contents five projects are listed chronologically. They begin at the start of the graduate school program and end with Wil- liam’s Master’s Thesis Project. Through close investigation and actual site analysis, these projects respond to imperative architectural issues occurring at all different scales throughout our cities. Upon further de- velopment, these conceptual ideas where then turned into credible design projects and presented in a professional format at the School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP).

    • The summer studio for the Solar Decathlon House was a six week design / build investi- gation that resulted in the production of full scale mocks-ups for the final project. Strate- gies used coming into the design of the façade included the use of reclaimed materials, a louver system that would prevent excessive heat gains, and a design that would capture the attention of the jury.

The museum will be located on the ground floor, adjacent to the Menom- onee River. Along St. Paul Avenue, retail stores will be available to support the rest of the building. The second floor and the river side of the third floor will be used exclusively for parking. This building will be able to hold up to 1000 automobiles. The rest of the third floor will be used for a big box store such as an IKEA or Target and the upper floors will be office space.

    • Once a large impervious pavement, this land- scape has been transformed into a swath of green space containing a small parking lot for the museum workshops. Emphasis has also been given to the parking ramp entrance with large letters to create an eventful experience for those visiting the museum.

    • The lift bridge spanning over the railroad tracks will serve as the main entrance into the museum. Instead of looking at this railroad spur as an obstacle, it was treated as an opportunity that would create anticipation and excitement for people visiting the museum. The three train systems that operate beneath the Main Post Office Building include, Canadian Pacific Railway, Amtrak, and the proposed Milwaukee Streetcar. Glass windows will be placed strategically throughout the build- ing for people to view trains passing by from within.

    • The museum is located on the ground floor of the Main Post Office Building adjacent to the Menomonee River. Above the museum is a large parking garage that can be accessed by either North 6th Street, North Plankin- ton Avenue, or West St. Paul Avenue. Green roofs will also be added to the majority of the building and play a major role for preventing runoff water into the Menomonee River. Spanning above the tracks will be a parking on the second floor, retail on the third, and office spaces above.
