(Olathe, KS 2007) In 2007, the City of Olathe granted 91 acres to the Kansas Bioscience Park. Within this grant, 38 acres were designated for the K-State Olathe Innovation Campus. Academic research will focus on commercially viable applies research and technology discovery in animal health, plant science, food safety and security, bioenergy, and other relevant areas. *This project was done as a Senior Urban Designer with 360 Architecture in Kansas City, MO. It was my good fortune to return to my hometown and re-charge my midwestern roots practicing with this progressive and innovative design firm.

  • EXECUTIVE SUMMARY | 3

    In 2007, the City of Olathe granted 91 acres to the Kansas Bioscience Park. Within this

    grant, 38 acres were designated for the K-State Olathe Innovation Campus. This land

    is located east of the junction of K-7 Highway and College Boulevard and is next to the

    College Boulevard Activity Center. From around the globe, the new K-State Olathe

    Innovation Campus will attract people who are passionate about protecting the worlds

    food supply and promoting animal health.

    The K-State Olathe Innovation Campus will be the academic research presence within

    the Kansas Bioscience Park, providing a direct portal to K-States broad capabilities and

    its many resources on the Manhattan campus. The campus will focus on commercially

    viable applied research and technology discovery in animal health, plant science, food

    safety and security, bioenergy, and other relevant areas.

    Underlying all the areas of technology, discovery and commercialization are Bioscience

    education and workforce development. K-State Olathe will partner with existing

    educational institutions at every level, from the Johnson County school districts and

    area colleges to other educational institutions within the Animal Health Corridor.

  • PLAN PURPOSE | 5

    The new K-State Olathe Innovation Campus master plan is a dynamic tool for the long-

    term development of the campus and establishing positive links with the surrounding

    community. Its purpose is to guide, not dictate, the inevitability of change.

    The purpose of the K-State Olathe Innovation Campus master plan is to develop a

    framework for the growth and enhancement of a new campus that identifies short-term

    and long-term objectives with an implementation outline.

  • THE KANSAS BIOSCIENCE PARK | 7

    The K-State Olathe Innovation Campus is located within the Kansas Bioscience Park.

    A criteria manual containing design guidelines and standards for the Bioscience Park

    had been developed. The Kansas Bioscience Park Guidelines can be found in the

    appendix of this document. These guidelines are meant to be used as a design tool in

    conjunction with all other city requirements. The general purpose of the requirements

    is to ensure the highest quality and sustainable campus design for the Bioscience Park.

    The information is intended to be used for the office, research and development building

    sites, architectural design, streets, streetscapes, open space and landscaping, as well

    as the location of utilities and drainage.

    In general, the development plan for the Bioscience Park should be considered as a

    general blueprint intended to create the highest quality and sustainable campus. The

    Planning Framework for the K-State Olathe Innovation Campus meets those goals and

    recognizes the importance of this document. It also recognizes the city of Olathes

    desire for a customized designed park combining style and vision with practicality and

    attractive and innovative properties that compliment its surroundings.

    GUIDING PRINCIPLES & FRAMEWORK

    Like the KSU (Manhattan) Campus Master Plan 2004, the KSU Olathe Innovation

    Campus Master Plan is comprised of four components: Open Space, Buildings,

    Circulation and Infrastructure. The K-State Olathe Innovation Campuss Guiding

    Principles are based on those that guide and support the mission of Kansas State

    University. They adhere to:

    1. Reflect the Mission of Kansas State University in the Physical Environment

    2. Design for a pedestrian-oriented campus

    3. Create Positive Linkages to the Community

    4. Account for the Long-term Impact of Planning Decisions

    5. Respect the Natural Systems of the Campus Fabrics. . . and our surrounding community

    . . . in places where we gather

    . . . and work

  • 10 | K-STATE OLATHE INNOVATION CAMPUS MASTER PLAN

    Maintain the Quadrangle Concept

    Design and develop buildings that enhance and define outdoor/open spaces. Recognize that learning occurs both inside and outside

    the classroom. Develop a network of outdoor spaces within the campus that are diverse in scale and spatial form and allow for

    complementary learning, with active and passive space.

    Place buildings in a manner to develop outdoor public rooms that act as an extension to the buildings. Create opportunities along the

    edges of buildings for interaction and exchange. The location and position of the open spaces and quadrangles relative to future campus

    development is important. They have the capacity to set a precedent for future growth outward as extensions of the core campus beyond

    current boundaries.

    PLANNING FRAMEWORK:

    OPEN SPACES

    Each District has identifiable centers and edges, defined by organization and spatial hierarchy. Character, density, landscape and quality may vary district to district.

    Creating environments that stimulate and accomodate . . .

    OPEN SPACES

    Site buildings to complement the new campus central focus.

    Develop activities and campus functions along a central

    spine. The central spine is referred to as the Education

    Spine. It is identified as the place where a greater

    amount of interaction and activities occur. It should

    be developed in a manner that engenders a sense of

    ownership by the students, faculty, staff, and surrounding

    community. It should also create an interconnected

    series of open spaces that tie the campus together.

    Activities and elements that might be part of this

    experience may include but are not limited to building

    entrances and lobbies, larger lecture spaces and

    conference facilities, resource centers, cafes, and other

    general gathering spaces and public functions.

    Locate gathering spaces along the education spine

    Promote activity along building edges . . .

    Public spaces within buildings offer spontaneous interaction and may become part of the campus education spine
