On the Drawing Boards: Architects have revised the design of the new addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum yet again. In April of last year, a development advisory board approved an initial design by HGA architect Jim Shields, FAIA. Another HGA design (sans Shields) surfaced last month, which the Journal Sentinel's Mary Louise Schumacher called "a dose of dullness." Yesterday, another revised design was revealed, with Shields back on the design team. [Journal Sentinel]
