Architects tell Highwoods to go back to the drawing board on proposed law office

The Kansas City chapter of the American Institute of Architects is asking Highwoods Properties to redo its proposal for a law office on one of the Country Club Plaza’s original blocks.

In a letter describing the Plaza as one of Kansas City’s “few special places,” the AIA board says the design of Polsinelli Shughart’s headquarters “needs to be significantly reconsidered,” which is a polite way of saying that it’s too big and too ugly.
