EIGHT K-STATE STUDENTS INVITED TO TAKE PART IN KANSAS CITY DESIGN CENTER STUDIO

MANHATTAN -- Eight students from Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning and Design are taking part in a prestigious studio sponsored by the Kansas City Design Center during the 2009-2010 school year.

The center is an interdisciplinary, interuniversity urban design/research studio, the mission of which is to be an agent of public discourse in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Students from both K-State and the University of Kansas take part in the studio and address complex physical planning and design issues relevant to change in metropolitan Kansas City.

Each student receives a scholarship to offset the expense of living in Kansas City during the school year.
