Contest seeks sculpture designs for KU engineering building

The Kansas University School of Engineering and A. Zahner Company will give one KU student the chance to see their design become the inspiration for a new sculpture on the KU campus.

A competition will be held to determine the winner, whose entry will be adapted into a large-scale hanging installation in the atrium of the university's new engineering building, set to open in summer 2015.

The contest is open to all current KU students and the winner will be given the opportunity to collaborate with A. Zahner, a Kansas City-based engineering and fabrication company. The firm's signature works include the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Mo., and the AT&T; Stadium in Dallas.

The deadline to submit a conceptual design is Dec. 5, and the wining entry will be announced on Jan. 26, 2015. For an entry form and more information on the contest, visit the KU School of Engineering's website.
