McKnight / Ulrich

Wichita, KS

Originally designed by McAfee3 Architects in the mid 1970s, the 67,000 SF McKight/Ulrich complex is a major focal point at the entrance to the Wichita State University campus. Set on a limited, sloped site, the renovation program included administration, exhibition, teaching, and lecture facilities. McAfee3 Architects’ design solution incorporated glass-enclosed bridges that joined McKnight to an adjacent teaching facility. This project earned design awards from the Kansas AIA, Central States regional Architectural Competition and National Organization for Minority Architects.
