JOHNSON COUNTY ARTS AND HERITAGE CENTER
OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS
Within an architectural context that celebrates post-WWII optimism, industry and the historic migration to the suburbs and, at the same time, a modern sensibility of new urbanism, adaptive redevelopment and people friendly places, five archetypal forms are explored that are consistent with mid-century modern design and create a functional art element, an outdoor room for public gathering entitled Assemblage. “Assemblage” within the art world is a form of sculpture comprised of three-dimensional objects arranged so that they create a piece. The word “Assemblage” is also defined as a gathering of people.
