Architivity: Union Station. An Interdisciplinary Guide to Kansas City's Most Monumental Landmark.
Graves, Ginny, Ed.
The American Institute of Architects, locally and nationally, is active in supporting environmental education efforts in the schools. Because of its "endangered" status, Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri, was chosen by the Kansas City chapter as the second focus landmark in the their series. This interdisciplinary field guide serves as a prototype for guides on other landmarks as well. The specific activities in the book include: (1) a field trip guide with a variety of activities; (2) a Union Station board game; (3) economic decision making models; (4) a "Daily News" reprint with questions and answers; and (5) activities designed to develop advocacy for a quality built environment. Some of the activities included are cut-out models, a numbers game, a Union Station song, and architectural comparisons. A list of 28 related resources is given. (PPB)
