The annual Bowman Design Forum was introduced by Kansas State alumnus Brent Bowman to expose third-year architecture students to the field’s top professionals. Participants compete through submissions of innovative design for scholarships and interact with nationally recognized architects.

The Bowman Design Forum exemplifies the strong tradition of partnership between the Department of Architecture and the professional architectural community, an alliance which has advanced the discipline and contributed to the vitality of all who have shared in its bounties. Brent Bowman, a 1972 graduate of the Department of Architecture, has long played an active role in fostering educational excellence through generous gifts of time, counsel and other contributions in support of the school’s endeavors.
