I went back in the Kauffman Center for another photo tour on Thursday May 26 as the building nears further completion.
Above: The grand lobby/Brandmeyer Great Hall from the lower level of the lobby on looking toward the southwest.
Below: On the upper level of the lobby. Because of the glass and light reflections you can see the Hyatt and the Lathrop & Gage buildings reflected in the glass next to the Bartle Hall Skystation pylons to the left.
Above: The grand lobby, to be known as the Brandmeyer Great Hall undergoing further construction on April 19, looking toward the northwest. Glass railings will take the place of the current makeshift wood railing.
Below: The under-floor heating tubes are being installed on the floor of Brandmeyer Hall.
Reminder: Photo show tonight at 7 pm at The Hook Gallery near 45th and State Line around the antique and art shops at 1711 West 45th, KCMO, immediately east of State Line. Here’s the Facebook page.
On my visit on Tuesday March 1 to the Kauffman Center I had the chance to go around looking at different parts of the construction progress. Checking in on the grand lobby is always fun. It’s to be dedicated as the Brandmeyer Great Hall. First photo is with my fisheye lens at 15mm (full frame) and the second with my standard wide angle lens at 16mm.
Two weeks ago I had the chance again to go inside the Kauffman Center construction site for photography. For this post I’m highlighting my three fisheye-lens shots taken from the top level off the edge as close to the center as I could get. The Lobby will be called the Brandmeyer Great Hall.
The Kauffman Center as I refer to it, also known as the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, is a $400 million project in downtown Kansas City, Missouri designed by architect Moshe Safdie. The Kauffman Center will be opening this September.
