Kansas City, MO
The Nelson-Atkins’ Bloch Building represents an architectural accomplishment of international importance and a significant turning point in architect Stephen Holl’s career. Although the project received criticism during its planning and construction, in the 10 years since its opening the iconic addition has become a point of civic pride.
Together with other local landmarks, the Bloch Building is emblematic of Kansas City’s rising prominence in design and the fine and performing arts. An Iconic Addition: Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Bloch Building honors the anniversary of the expansion and the forward thinking trustees and staff who saw the Bloch Building to fruition.
