UMKC / KSU Design Discovery Summer Program!


Are you interested in one of the design fields, but don’t really know which one or what it entails? Here’s your chance to find out!

Kansas City Design Discovery is a one-week intensive studio-based program for students interested in the design professions of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Architecture/Product Design and Urban Planning/Design. If you are considering studies in the design professions, this is your opportunity to find out more about what design professionals do. You will learn the basics of design, start developing the skills needed for success and get the answers you are looking for about design education.

The studio is modeled like a college architectural design studio where students learn the basics of design through several introductory design projects, slideshows and discussions. A portion of the week will be spent visiting professional design offices and other important sites in the Kansas City area.

Kansas City Design Discovery will take place at the Katz Hall (5005 Rockhill Road), on the campus of the University of Missouri, Kansas City.

The program runs from Monday, June 10th to Friday, June 14th. We will meet from 9am-3pm, with a break for lunch on-campus.

This course is for high school students or college students considering studies in architecture, landscape architecture, interior architecture/product design and urban planning/design–or for those students who have an interest in the designed environment and would like an introduction to the concepts of this engaging field.

Enrollment begins April 22nd, but you should run through a short application process prior to that. (The total course cost is about $400.) If you’d like to take the course or would just like more information about it, please email Prof. John Eck at We’ll keep you updated.
