Center for Architecture & Design Kansas City

The Center for Architecture & Design is a collective of design-minded individuals who recognize the impact and value of design in our everyday lives. The Center serves as a forum for discussion, collaboration and the promotion of quality design through programs, lectures, education and advocacy.

The Center offers outreach programs for students to learn about careers in architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, interior design and graphic design. The goal of all of our programs is to introduce students and teachers to design, design thinking, and careers in design.

We also want to help students and teachers understand the skills that are needed in architecture and other design related fields—problem solving, creative thinking, collaboration, communication skills, presentation skills, leadership skills, technical knowledge, and community awareness, and that those skills can translate into many other career fields.
