UMKC students contribute to Downtown Arts Campus
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Students at the University of Missouri-Kansas City have been working on plans to integrate a proposed Downtown Campus for the Arts into the community.
The school says that second-, third- and fourth-year students in the university's Department of Architecture, Urban Planning + Design program have focused their studio work for the semester on the campus. Students have worked side by side with local and national firms on the project.
Some of the students focused on a hypothetical mixed-use retail and residential development. It would include a musical instrument and accessory store for future students of the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance, a café/coffee bar and five student apartments.
The public will have a chance to view the students' work at a series of presentations this month.
