PROPOSAL ARCH TO SUCCESS Kaylie Beckley & Tracey Frye 19 November 2012
Design Statement KCAI is a very prestigious school and well known for, but the current east entrance does not work for the school because it is too bland. The sidewalk that leads into the green area of the campus is very straight whereas the other sidewalks are very curvy and more creative and fun. The feeling is gives right now is unapproachable; we want to give it the feeling of structured, leading, and worthiness.
For the assessment of the landscape, we came up with a few words that described the school. We thought of structure because the school is very structured. It has a good foundations program and most of the majors KCAI offers are well rounded. Another word was innovative, because most of the projects students create are in ways introducing new ideas to the world. We also chose modern because of the fairly new architectural buildings on campus. Examples of a more modern design on campus are the Dodge Painting Building, and Irving.
