K/O Architects has been busy as Fairground Architects and Fairground Planners attending (and designing) Fairs and Festivals all around the country, and just having a “Good Ol’ Time” this summer! We thought we would include a couple of photos of what we’ve been up to in August. Fairground Design has taken us all around the United States as we have been working on Livestock Barns, Equine Facilities, Exhibition Buildings, Fairground Design and other Entertainment types of projects.

 

We got a chance to visit a couple of NASCAR tracks this summer as we were planning some fairs!

We got a chance to attend a few concerts on Fairgrounds this summer – like Brantley Gilbert and Skid Row! We even had some backstage passes!

We spent the day working a food stand at the Iowa State Fair! There is nothing like first-hand experience to understand what works!

We got to visit the Evergreen State Fair in full swing as part of the Master Planning process! The Ferris Wheel is courtesy of Butler Amusements.

Cool lighting effect on the back of this grandstand at a track our NASCAR feasibility consultants were involved with – DSA Motorsports.

We got a chance to climb the roof tops at the Iowa State Fair this summer as we analyzed flow to better develop our planning concepts!
