LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The University of Kansas is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the start of its architecture program.

The university says visitors will be able to take tours Friday and Saturday of Marvin Hall, which houses the School of Architecture, Design and Planning.

Visitors also will be able to view recent student projects and look in on design studios.

An architecture school at the university was the idea of St. Louis architect Montrose McArdle. McArdle had been hired to help design a new administration building, and he suggested it to then-Chancellor Frank Strong.

Such programs were uncommon then, but the Kansas Board of Regents authorized one for the university's engineering school in 1912. Students finished their first year of study in spring 1913.
