Harley-Davidson Museum
Pentagram Architects, 2006-2008

The Harley-Davidson Museum sits on a twenty-acre reclaimed industrial site directly across the Menomonee River from downtown Milwaukee and has been conceived as an urban factory ready-made for spontaneous motorcycle rallies. The three-building campus includes space for permanent and temporary exhibitions, the company's archives, a restaurant and cafe, and a retail shop, as well as a generous amount of event and waterfront recreational space.

My role in the project began at the schematic design phase, in which I prepared study models and analyzed various facade options. My contribution expanded in the construction documents phase, where I did much of the interior detailing. I also contributed heavily during the construction administration phase, notably coordinating the exhibit electrical and multimedia designers and the electrical subcontractor. Furthermore, I was involved in the design and detailing of several exhibits and provided architectural coordination to the exhibit design team at Pentagram.
