It's about Kansas City. It's about design.

It's about a week long. (8 days, really)
It's all about coming together for events,
workshops, parties, talks, explorations,
a big dose of the fabled surprise & delight.
It's inspiration, connecting, discovering
that, sure enough, Design Was Here,
just about everywhere, all week long.

Sponsored by
Center for Architecture & Design and friends. Make it your week, too.
