Missouri Innovation Campus and Summit Technology Academy Space Wins “Learning By Design” Award

The Missouri Innovation Campus and Summit Technology Academy building won the Grand Prize Award in the annual release of the nation’s best education design and construction process showcase through “Learning By Design” magazine. Five education facility design projects across the country were awarded Grand Prize. A distinguished panel of eight architects, education administrators and facility professionals reviewed 72 submissions and selected five Grand Prize Award-winning facilities that “are simply amazing projects.” Each of the five projects combined all the elements that make a learning environment successful—transparency, connectivity, safety, sustainability, great interiors, purposeful functional design and sophistication.

About the Missouri Innovation Campus, jurors commented: “Loved the large range of differentiated space types to support various learning modalities and activities. Adaptable design for future use and changes is great. The design and programming have real world relevance.”

Built in collaboration with the University of Central Missouri, DLR Group, Gould Evans and McGownGordon Construction, the Missouri Innovation Campus serves as a hub for high school and college students. As a result of participating in one of the Missouri Innovation Campus programs, students will be on track to earn a bachelor’s degree just two years after graduating from high school. The Missouri Innovation Campus is a progressive initiative by the University of Central Missouri, Metropolitan Community College, the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, community organizations and businesses partners. This program is designed to revolutionize the way students learn and work, while bridging the gap between skills and workforce demands.
