Inspiring, Educating and Celebrating Design

AIA Kansas City is pleased to announce its new identity as of January 2014: Center for Architecture & Design

Like many of our sister chapters around the country, AIA Kansas City is adding new depth and dimension to its role in our community. Center for Architecture & Design is a PLACE, a COLLECTIVE, and a RESOURCE for our community to benefit from the creativity and ingenuity of design professionals.

We’re still (and always will be) the home of 965+ AIA members, firms, and sponsors. But we are becoming more outward-facing and bringing together multiple design industries—architecture, graphic, landscape architecture, interior design, urban planning, interior architecture, and others—to strengthen our positive impact in the business and civic communities.

The Center plans programs and events to spotlight creativity, engage a wide audience in discussions about architecture and design, teach design thinking to all ages, celebrate the achievements of good design as contributing to our quality of life, and help our metro area reach its full potential.

Kansas City Design Week is the perfect platform to make this exciting announcement, as it has embodied the goals of this new Center for Architecture & Design for the past five years.

The Center is located at 1801 McGee Street, Ste. 100, Kansas City, Missouri.
