Design Discovery at UMKC
June 3, 2019 - June 5, 2019
Kansas City Design Discovery is a summer workshop for high school or college students interested in the design professions of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Architecture/Product Design or Urban Planning/Design.
Students considering studies in one of these design fields can find out more about what college and eventual careers might be like, as well as learn some great design fundamentals and design history. The workshop also covers how to prepare for college now, what to look for in a collegiate design program, and more about the design program at University of Missouri-Kansas City and its unique partnership with Kansas State University.
This non-credit course is modeled after a collegiate architectural design seminar: students learn about the design fields through simple design projects, slideshows and discussions. A portion of each day will be spent touring important design sites near the Kansas City campus. The program meets in Katz Hall from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily for three days, with a break for lunch.
