D is for DESIGN


Last evening we attended the musical Aida at the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts in Kansas City,  Mo. This has been a 5 year project and the building is phenomenol. The Kauffman Center was built to enrich the lives of communities throughout our region.

The building is DESIGNED with 40,000 feet of glass, 25,000 cubic yards of concrete and 27 steel cables.  You can learn so much more from Wickipedia about the architect and other information which is so interesting.

This picture is from Wickipedia.

The following pictures I took last night at the performance,

The glass gives a gorgeous view of the downtown skyline.

One of the very hugh cables.

The Kauffman Center is the home to the Kansas City Symphony, The Lyric Opera of Kansas City and the Kansas City Ballet.

The show Aida was wonderful, I really enjoy this beautiful love story.

Such a spacious and modern structure...some elements resemble the Sydney Opera house.....

I've heard the fun part is designing a project. Figuring out how to actually build it is an entirely different thing. Love the pictures.

The Kauffman Center looks amazing! Like you, I love to take whatever pictures I can get when we go to a performance. You did well to give us a great feel for the magnificent architecture. I'm glad you enjoyed Aida (It's a wonderful story) and Debussy's Claire de Lune too :)

Cheri said...

Wow, that's an impressive building. Makes me want to consider a drive up there to see some sort of show.

Sara said...

That is indeed a phenomenal building! You got some great photos and I know it was very stunning to be there in person. Those windows are so dramatic.
