Missouri State University
Missouri State University commissioned Esterly, Schneider to design a new main-entrance gateway to welcome students and the community at the main campus in Springfield, MO. Designed using cast stone and granite, the two walls with prominent columns define the University’s front entrance located at National Avenue and Monroe Street. The materials were selected to reflect their local heritage highlighting Missouri’s native red granite. The prominent curved walls proudly display the Missouri State logo; detailed on a plaque.
This design is reflected on each corner of the main entrance to MSU, enhancing the intersection as the campus’ focal point.
