William T. Kemper Foundation gives $1 million boost to Seaton Complex

By Hayli Morrison

The Kansas City, Missouri-based William T. Kemper Foundation has made a gift of $1 million to the College of Architecture, Planning & Design (APDesign) at Kansas State University to support the Seaton Complex revitalization and expansion.

With expected groundbreaking in fall 2015, the $75 million project will renovate 80,000 square feet of Seaton Hall and add 114,000 square feet of new construction. The building will include consolidated fabrication capabilities, integrated design labs, collaborative spaces and a 300-seat auditorium. In recognition of the gift, the exterior amphitheatre will be named the William T. Kemper Foundation Amphitheatre. Upon completion, the amphitheatre will serve as a public gathering place for students, faculty and visitors to interact outdoors. (more)

 

Design Team Announced!

As many are well aware, last week was a major milestone in the history of APDesign. Thursday, four incredible design teams presented their qualifications to lead the process of reworking Seaton Hall into a 21st Century nexus of design and planning teaching, research and service. I am both thankful and proud of the showing made by our students, faculty, staff and alumni. Each session had approximately 200 in attendance, providing us with very useful feedback through completed questionnaires and commentary. (Click"more" to find out who was chosen)
