Students from the University of Kansas designed conceptual boathouse projects.

KU ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS VISUALIZE BOATHOUSE CONCEPTS FOR THE ARKANSAS RIVER

During the course of the semester, students worked with Wichita State rowing officials, City of Wichita Staff and local design professions to design conceptual boathouse projects for the west bank of the Arkansas River.

In the spring of 2012, University of Kansas Architecture students looked at multiple design concepts for a boathouse facility along the west bank of the Arkansas River. The students worked in concert with the Wichita State crew team and rowing officials to develop the necessary program for the proposed facility. The fourth-year architecture students made several site visits to Wichita and a team of local design professionals, City staff and WSU representatives traveled to Lawrence for student critiques. The students’ work offers the possibility for a creative and iconic solution for a boathouse facility along the river that would give a permanent home to the Wichita State crew team and local rowing association.
