Food systems architect to open spring 2019 Ekdahl Lecture Series
The College of Architecture, Planning & Design, or APDesign, will host Caitlin Taylor, a registered architect and director of design for MASS Design Group, as part of the 2018-2019 Ekdahl Lecture Series. Taylor will present "Provisional Architecture: Designing Just Food Systems" at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1, in Regnier Forum at Regnier Hall on the K-State Manhattan campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Taylor will discuss the history of MASS Design Group's work, and the conceptual framework for her focus on food system design as a form of radical hope. Through that lens, she will present some of the ongoing food and farming projects on the boards at MASS, including the Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch in Kansas, a new national network for school kitchen design, a community-run food hall as catalyst for urban redevelopment in Poughkeepsie, New York, an installation to cultivate food literacy with students in Indiana, and an industrial scale grain mill in Senegal.
Five APDesign students win in 20th anniversary of Bowman Forum
Outstanding design work by five third-year architecture students in Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning & Design, or APDesign, earned honors at the 20th annual Bowman Design Forum on Dec. 7 in Regnier Hall on the Manhattan campus.
Sponsored by BBN Architects Inc. in Manhattan and hosted by APDesign, the forum brought acclaimed architects to campus to discuss work by students in the architecture department. The forum is an opportunity for students to present their work to architecture practitioners and educators for critiques.
One student from each of the department's five third-year studio sections was selected to present his or her design for "The Blue Valley Yacht Club." Each student participant prepared a model, drawings and a digital presentation.
The following students were awarded a total of $4,500 in prizes. All are third-year students as part of APDesign's five-year graduate architecture program.
Matthew Ho, Fairway, received the $2,000 Honor Award; and Alexandra Mesias, Lee's Summit, Missouri, received the $1,000 Special Merit. Garrett Scott, Wichita; Dean Randolph, Chesterfield, Missouri; and Lawson Endicott, Loma Linda, Missouri, were all $500 finalists.
