Exhibition at the Jackson County Courthouse
TransformKC held its second exhibition in the main lobby and second floor atrium of the Jackson County, Missouri Courthouse. The opening ceremony included an acknowledgement of the exhibit by the Jackson County legislature, who has been instrumental in their leadership for a regional commuter rail system. As a very public and prominent fixture in the public eye, the Courthouse was a great opportunity to showcase TransformKC to the general public and key decision-makers alike.
All of the submissions within the exhibition are meant to inspire and elevate the public discourse around the transformative power of smart, sustainable transportation investments. With the exposure and events over the multi-year traveling exhibit, many of the ideas presented represent an opportunity to change the public’s perception of the future of the City and show the benefits of public transit.
The exhibition at the Jackson County Courthouse is the culmination of TransformKC’s International Call for Ideas that gathered some of the greatest urban design and transit projects from around the world. TransformKC intends to inspire the public imagination about regional mobility by showcasing built and unbuilt work that links rail-based transit to the design of our cities.
