David T. Beals III Studio for Art and Technology

Kansas City Art Institute

The new building includes new classroom space with high tech fabrication labs for artwork, a large critique space and storage area for students and faculty. The new outdoor slab and canopy area provides an open air work space as well as a large area to house sculpture work. The exterior work includes a new main entrance onto campus, new parking spaces, and a brick paved and concrete courtyard that brings the campus to life and will be used as an entertainment and event space. McCownGordon did extensive sitework including the installation of a new storm sewer system and holding tanks in the middle of campus, as well as new landscaping and flat work.
