  • Brief Description

    Ascent MKE, a 259-unit luxury apartment community located in Milwaukee, WI, has issued an RFP for our Artist in Residence program to enrich the lives of our residents through the arts, support the local arts economy, and provide opportunities for community engagement in downtown Milwaukee and the Greater Milwaukee area.

    Completed in 2022, Ascent MKE holds a world record as the world’s tallest mass timber building, and has reframed what is possible in the world of construction and design. The project utilizes mass timber as the structural system for the 7th through 25th floors, and has drawn international acclaim for its innovative design, technological precision, and trailblazing sustainability. Mentioned in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Nightly News with Lester Holt, NPR, Vox, PBS News Hour, The Chicago Tribune, Fast Company, Engineering News Record, and the subject of the documentary series Engineering the Future.
