Conceived as a nonprofit in 1899, American Royal has been just as much a part of Kansas City’s fabric as its iconic fountains, vibrant jazz scene, and acclaimed barbeque spots.
American Royal is a leader in the nation for food and agriculture education, events, and engagement. Multistudio has partnered with J.E. Dunn Construction to create the new home for the American Royal. An 80-acre site will include 47 acres of storage and trailer parking and a complex of buildings totaling approximately one million square feet.
Our team has been tapped to assist in re-strategizing the organization as it enters the next 100 years in a new location in Kansas City, Kansas. Ongoing collaboration with stakeholders will ensure that the complex will be an effective venue for the communities and events that American Royal serves. Multistudio’s scope comprises all of its disciplines, yielding an entirely designed experience that encompasses everything from its landscape to its signage and wayfinding. Construction will begin in the fall.
