Beach Museum of Art, Kansas State University

The Beach Museum of Art, nestled among trees in the oldest and most beautiful corner of this medium-sized campus, bisects an important pedestrian path linking ‘town’ and ‘gown’. The building houses the University’s art collection and provides much needed multi-purpose space as well as additional classrooms for the Art Department. The functions of the building were separated into two wings bridging the pedestrian path; one serves as the ‘vault’ for the display, storing and curation of the art, and the other for academic and public functions. Through a value-engineering program, the $6 million budget was stretched to upgrade and improve this very important corner of the campus and its grounds.
