Dog Days

In honor of the dwindling days of summer, I’ve pulled out some photos of aquatic centers–‘swimming pools’ for those of us from the 1900’s.  These are in O’Fallon and Oak Grove, MO, respectively.  Both are designed by SFS Architecture.

Downtown Rez

I am going to make a concerted effort to keep up with the blog.  I know I’ve said that in months past, but I am looking at all the projects I didn’t post in 2018, just to name one year.  And this year is more than half over, so…without further ado:

Truth be Told

For Freedoms is hosting ‘Truth be Told’, a series of three billboards by Fake Name along Highway 54 in MO, between Eldon and Bagnall. If you get a chance to make the drive, you’ll see them going north-bound towards Eldon.  This is an organization doing wonderful work wide and deep across the country, please check them out.

Commerce Tower

These are of the recently renovated Commerce Tower in downtown KC.  Does my heart good to see a stately old building given a renewed lease on life.  Design and construction by Ryan Companies.

St. Columban

These are recent photos of St. Columban Parish in Chillicothe, MO with interiors restored beautifully by Conrad Schmitt Studios.  It’s worth a road trip to the birth-place of sliced bread to see.
