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.
These are photos from a recent road-trip I took to see the gorgeous new addition to the School of Architecture building at the “U of Ark” in Fayetteville – designed by Marlon Blackwell with Polk Stanley Wilcox. I was very graciously allowed to snoop around with a camera for the day and cause all their students to wonder if somebody should phone security. And for you fans of Architectural Photography Rock-Stars: I ran into Peter Aaron and Francis Dzikowski on campus! They were taking photos at another new building nearby… I didn’t get autographs, so you’ll just have to take my word.
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…
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.

When I was a kid I spent probably 90% of my time in the ditch next door to our house building dams out of mud and bricks. It’s what I’d be doing right now if the city hadn’t buried a pipe in place of our creek. So when I got a call this summer about taking photos of the new hydro-electric power plant in Lawrence, I said “Yeah, I’d love to”. Just like that. Very restrained and adult like. Built by Kissick, architecture by Sabatini.
