City projects featured at local architecture event
The City of Kansas City, Mo., Capital Improvements Management Office will highlight architecture projects the office has undertaken at a lecture from noon to 1 p.m. on Jan. 17 at the American Institute of Architects, 104 W. 9th St., Suite 101.
The lecture is part of the “3-Pack” series, which had its first event last November. The series is sponsored in conjunction with the Kansas City chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Future lecture series dates are to be determined.
Each lecture focuses on three City-managed architecture and public spaces projects in three different stages of development — design, construction and completion. Architects associated with the following projects will discuss the issues faced and challenges overcome with these projects:
• 18th & Vine Signage and Patio: a new sign that will distinguish the historic 18th & Vine District and the development of a patio area near 18th and Paseo Boulevard
• Metro Patrol Station: a new police station located at 77th and Paseo Boulevard to replace the existing facility
• Fire Station No. 14: opened on Oct. 15, 2006, this station was built to support the growing population of residential and commercial boom in the northland.
