Kauffman Center’s Progress on Brandmeyer Great Hall in Late June

On my brief visit back to the Kauffman Center this past Friday afternoon I nabbed a few new shots of Brandmeyer Great Hall. Progress is noticeable especially from a couple of months back, and it’s now almost complete as the Kauffman Center officially takes possession of the lobby/hall soon.

Inside the Kauffman Center’s Lobby

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.

Brandmeyer Great Hall at the Kauffman Center under construction

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.

The Grand Lobby in the Kauffman Center – under construction

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.
