Some Kansas City Filler: Kauffman Center

.
Kansas City 2012-01-06 1

A few last images from Kansas City. This is the Kauffman Center For The Performing Arts, a remarkable piece of architecture. It is the home of the Kansas City Symphony, Lyric Opera and Ballet. The building contains a theater and a large concert hall, presenting a variety of musical acts and stage shows.

It was nearly empty when I stopped by last Saturday but the lobby was open. Views from different perspectives don't quite look like the same building.

Arch photo tomorrow, then a day or two of something local. On Sunday maybe a pic from beautiful Dallas - Ft. Worth International Airport, where we change planes Saturday. Then we got a problem. We will be in the black zone, really out in the wilderness for a few days.

Very impressive building. The Sydney Opera House must have started a trend for architectural statements when designing performing arts centers.

Best wishes for your trip. We will look forward to seeing photos upon your return.

A wonderful structure and some excellent perspectives, Bob. It looks like a turbine hall.

Good Grief! You ARE a travelin' man. Ricky Nelson would be proud of you.

An amazing building. That lobby reminds me of our new conference centre; it has a glass wall spamming four stories, overlooking the canal....

I'm sure these photos make justice to this great architecture piece! The b&w was a perfect choice.
