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.

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

  • Nicholas Goellner, Antler Room Chef/Owner

    With a degree in political science from KU, Nick Goellner was a congressional aide in Topeka when he realized that politics was not his path. He took his sister's advice and went to culinary school. In 2006, he was accepted to the French Culinary Institute in New York City. Nick traveled and worked on a cruise ship, studying food throughout the Mediterranean, then returned to NYC to work under French chef Alain Allegretti. After helping a friend from culinary school run the historic restaurant, Robert Morris Inn on Chesapeake Bay, Nick looked into opportunities in Kansas City. At The Rieger, he quickly moved up to sous chef and learned the ins and outs of the local food scene. After meeting his future wife and business partner, Leslie Newsam, Nick went to Michelin-star Boulevard in San Francisco, working his way into restaurant management. Inspired by an episode of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Nick applied for an internship at the highest-rated restaurant in the world, Noma in Copenhagen. Nick reached his goal and became a test kitchen intern at Noma. He connected with great chefs from all over the world, as Leslie developed business plans for a future restaurant. The couple left Europe ready to take on their next adventure together. That adventure is The Antler Room.
