If the walls of historic Vanderslice Hall could talk, they would tell the stories of famous students who created, designed and inspired at the Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI). They would speak of the lavish Beaux Arts Ball in the 1930s, featured in LIFE Magazine, elephant rides on the lawn for Morgan Day in 1970, and painting sessions with faculty member, painter and muralist Thomas Hart Benton....click to view full article from KC Studio
The beginning of the school year is always full of excitement! This semester GastingerWalker& recently completed Citizens of the World Charter School. Citizens of the World Charter School has locations in New York and Los Angeles and recently opened their first campus in Kansas City on August 15th. The campus, housing grades K-2, is located at 3435 Broadway in a mid-century modern architectural gem in the heart of Midtown.
GastingerWalker& thrives on creating state-of-the-art learning environments that are stimulating and comfortable for both students and faculty. Congrats to the students starting their fall semesters! Best wishes for a great first year in the new facilities.
We are very excited to be working with Citizens of the World Charter School on their first campus in Kansas City! CWC is an amazing organization with charter schools based in Los Angeles and New York City and now KC is lucky enough to have its first Midwest location. The campus, housing grades K-2, is located at 3435 Broadway in a mid-century modern architectural gem in the heart of Midtown.
Our design for the renovation creates a porous floor plan allowing daylight and views to filter through all areas of the schools. Color and texture identify the main gathering spaces throughout the building to create calm, immersive environments for focused interaction. Our design approach is resourceful and environmentally responsive by re-purposing the existing lighting, interior glass walls and many finishes.
We can’t wait to see the results and continue our partnership with CWC on their next campus! Check out their website here to learn more:www.citizensoftheworld.org
