Earlier this month, two of our members – both associate architects at Gastinger Walker Harden+ BeeTriplett Buck – had the privilege of partnering with Kansas State University’s Women in Design group for a day of food, fun, and learning. The group started the day at GWH + BB’s downtown office with a tour and informational session about firm structure, culture, and project types.
After lunch, the group went on a private tour of The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. The tour included Helzberg Hall and Muriel Kauffman Theatre, the orchestra pit, back stage, rehearsal rooms, dressing rooms, and much more. The tour was both informative and inspiring, and we would like to thank Eric Miller – one of KCPA’s Production Services Managers – for showing the group around.
The day concluded with a brief walking tour of Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza. The group was able to see and experience several projects designed by the women at GWH + BB - including the Valencia Place Stair and the Granada Garage. It was a great day and a fun collaboration between Kansas City’s Women in Design and the students at Kansas State University. We hope to participate in similar events again in the future. Thank you to the K-State crew for driving to Kansas City to spend the day with us!
