On behalf of 360 Architecture and our Design Build partner Weitz Construction
Company, we would like to thank Dan Richardson and Kansas State University
for asking us to be involved in the master planning and inaugural building on
the K-State Olathe Innovation campus.
We are very proud and honored to work alongside the KSU stakeholders to
create the next generation of campus activity away from Manhattan. The
following document provides a clear definition of needs, issues, goals and
objectives that delineate the campus growth and development in a phased and
Thank you again for this opportunity.

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 | 9
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

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
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 . . .

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
