Miami In The Midwest
Stylistically, The Moderne is a reinterpretation of the Art Moderne movement of the 1920's and 1930's. This movement took cues from modern machines of its day, such as sleek ocean liners and the locomotive, as well as from a fascination with progress and forward thinking that characterized the era.
Seamlessly blending form and function, this classically inspired style features simple, clean lines and seductive curves. The signature corner, located on one of Milwaukee's most traveled intersections, features a curved glass "diner" window stretching from the ground to the top of the building. The building is a statement of style and elegance evoking the spirit of Art Moderne while adapting the design principles for a new era.
