About the KCDC West Bottoms Reborn Project
The 2-year long vision study for a system of public spaces in the West Bottoms, titled West Bottoms Reborn, is nearing the end of its second phase. Students will be presenting their preliminary public space designs for 12th St. Alley, Liberty Courtyard, and Central Ave. Viaduct. The public and stakeholder community are invited to provide their input and feedback on students’ design to ensure their ideas are integrated into the development of the final public space designs.
About KU Architecture 608 Sports and Entertainment Studio
This semester-long studio focuses on imagining a new cultural precinct in Kansas City, physically linking the arts and entertainment districts of Kansas City’s crossroads and inner loop. Anchored by a 5000-seat multipurpose competition and performance venue, projects seek to mend the urban environment divided by Interstate 670. Projects explore the need for urban, multipurpose facilities – and are designed to accommodate, but not limited to: performing arts, e-gaming, competition tennis/futsal court.
