Demolition work begins on NRHP-listed modernist building in Kansas City

Interior demolition work is underway at a Mies van der Rohe-inspired building in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The modernist mid-rise structure, formerly home to the city's Board of Education and central library, will be fully razed in the coming weeks although the fate of the building's colorful, beloved mosaic murals by prominent local artist, the late Arthur Kraft, remains murky.

The building should have been razed years ago. When it was home of the Central Branch of the library, the staff had to cover the book stacks with plastic whenever there was a lot of rain.
