Paquin Tower, a Columbia residence for elderly and disabled people, stands as one of the tallest buildings in Columbia. As a landmark and as a group of people, it is sometimes invisible.

With this project, the Missourian is scratching surface of Paquin’s stories. MU student photographers gathered one day in April to demystify the building and give its residents a voice.

Click to see their worlds.
