The Kansas City Star | Inside and out, Kauffman Center is an Architectural Marvel
For years now, we’ve been watching the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts evolve like a slow-motion crustacean.
The two clamshell-bandshell forms with their big glass enclosure have grown slowly on a downtown hilltop and carry a wide load of civic expectation.
The project represents a $414 million investment in the cultural life of Kansas City, and it’s also seen as a catalyst for continuing the urban revival that has taken place in recent years almost all around it.
With opening day upon us, patrons and the public will begin to evaluate how the complex will settle into and/or transform the community. Just what kind of an asset will the Kauffman Center be?
