Building Dreams 3: Cutting Down Hierarchies

Thursday10/2112:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Building Dreams 3 adds to the curatorial story started by the exhibits Building Dreams 1 and 2 by looking at the building sciences that exist within the physical location of Galaudet Gallery in the Milewski Mansion, Eau Claire. Building physics, architectural science and applied physics will be integrated into a look at how the Milewski Mansion is constructed and the efforts owner Michael Milewski is taking to rehabilitate this gem for a life beyond another 100 years.

Integrating Building Sciences into the storyline of our Building Dreams exhibit means learning more about the Milewski Mansion that houses the gallery in Eau Claire. Similar to the work Michael did on the gallery space in Chicago, the Milewski Two-Flat (an 1880 brick beauty), Michael seeks to rehabilitate and enliven this property using the decadeslong knowledge acquired through his primary business of restoring historical properties. Coupled with Michael’s certifications and research into sustainable building, this also means that he seeks to find a balance between a building’s footprint and the comfort of its occupants.
