It was in July that the moving van pulled up to Epperson House and moved the Department of Architecture, Urban Planning + Design to Katz Hall! As of mid-August, the spaces all came together and look terrific. A very BIG thank you goes to Dick Ahsmuhs for his untiring focus on securing furnishings for the new building. UMB Bank has donated furnishings that grace the offices, reception areas, and studios. The idea of using signature pieces in offices and common areas has also been supported by the furniture donations from UMB Bank. The gifts have made an incredible difference to the department.
Michael Frisch (AUP+D) reports that he raised over $12,000 from the Local Initiatives Support Corporation to support his studio. A story on the work was recently published in the Northeast News: http://www.northeastnews.net/indepavetalked.html.
