Multistudio & HNTB are Selected to Design the University of Kansas’ Memorial Stadium Renovation

October 12, 2022

Lawrence, KS – The University of Kansas announced plans for the transformation of the David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium and a significant renovation and enhancement to the Anderson Family Football Complex beginning in early 2023. It will alter the landscape of KU’s student-athlete and fan experience while benefitting the community as a whole.

This gateway to the north entryway of campus – at the intersection of 11th and Mississippi Streets, will host multi-use space to potentially including a mix of conference and entertainment space, retail and other functions that will drive regional economic growth and enhance academic programming. According to Travis Goff, Director of Athletics at KU, the project is “truly an institutional priority and will succeed due to its boldness and vision, and thanks to our donors and alumni who will invest in this bright future.”

John Wilkins, Jr., AIA LEED AP, Principal, and Director of Multistudio’s Lawrence office, commented:

“This will be a transformative project for KU, and we are honored to be selected along with HNTB for this effort. Our Lawrence studio location is embedded within the City with a long history of work at KU, and we are eager to engage the community as we design this northern gateway.”
