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:

Lot of churches last year, so that’s where I’ll start.  This first one is the Downtown Campus of the Church of the Resurrection–or Downtown Rez–designed by GouldEvans Architects.  And it also is the church my own wife attends.

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.

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.

Pryor Learning Commons

I only just realized I have not yet posted these photos, so here they are finally!  This is the new building on the quad at William Jewell College in Liberty, designed by Gould Evans, built by J E Dunn.  I’m sure there are others I need to post still, so stay tuned…

Webster Parking

A cool parking structure is SO much nicer than a surface parking lot.  This one is across the street from the Webster House, downtown KC, MO – and ill look nicer still when grubby snow mounds are melted.  Designed by Helix, built by McCownGordon.
