-The Pylons were named the Hair Curlers and other names by locals who didn't approve of their construction
-Sculptures measure 30x40 feet
-From KCStar (Editor Alice Thorson)
"The four fanciful sculptures that were installed in 1994 atop the soaring pylons of Bartle Hall were a $1.1 million project in the program. R.M. Fischer of New York was the artist."
-The building may be 50ft tall... Possibly slightly higher
-Email from HNTB:
"The concrete pylons are approx 180 feet above the roof plus artwork of 15 to 40 feet from the roof of the building.
Looking at the west elevation the building (original and the 1994 expansion are 1440 feet long (plus another 45 feet at the low roof south dock area). It is 309 feet with the pylons located 360 feet form the south end of the high roof." -Mike Fountain HNTB Architects
