An artist studio can take many forms, a dining room, an office, four white walls, a nook in a basement. Whatever the architecture, there is an inevitable response to the working space. In the pArtnership place studios there is a view that infiltrates many of the studios. This view is the result of being 13 floors up on the edge of Kansas City’s down town. The north facing windows offer a view of the plains that become our infinite horizon; they conjure references of the oceans flatness, with a clear path of sunset, and the lights of a port harbor at night with the darkness beyond. As a reminder of our reality we have pigeons not seagulls.
