Henry W. Bloch Executive Hall for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, University of Missouri, Kansas City
Moore Ruble Yudell, in collaboration with BNIM, worked with the Henry W. Bloch School of Management at the University of Missouri-Kansas City to design a new facility. The new Henry W. Bloch Executive Hall for Entrepreneurship and Innovation provides new spaces to meet the demands of increased student population, the specialized needs of entrepreneurial education programs and to serve the growing executive education programs of the Bloch School, while also serving the currently unmet needs for teaching spaces serving the undergraduate and graduate programs of the school.
The new 68,000 square foot building includes a 200-seat auditorium, multiple flexible and active learning classrooms, seminar rooms, a finance lab and faculty offices. The upper three floors of the building are connected by an open, light-filled lobby including an amphitheater that serves as an important student gathering area for the entire school.
