The Urban Edge Award is a biennial prize that recognizes excellence in urban design and the ability of individuals to create major, positive change within the public realm. This award honors internationally recognized Design Professionals who bring fresh, innovative, and effective thinking to the field of urban design.  The Invited Design Professionals are forward-thinking researchers and practitioners who are leading the movement to revitalize America’s Urban Industrial Legacy.
From Waste to Wonder participants will develop Design Projects at a variety of scales that explore issues of Urban Vacancy, Adaptive Re-Use and Productive Landscapes. Collaborators will use the power of design to re-imagine a Milwaukee where Cultural, Social, Economic and Environmental issues are foregrounded and fortified. Each Design Workshop will have a unique Theme, Site and Cast of Characters.
