During KCDW 2015, we rocked the Crossroads with the first-ever Kansas City Design Week Open Studio Night. There was so much excitement and celebration in our design studios - we couldn't wait to do it again in 2016!
Want to see inside of one of those cool ad agencies? How about checking out some amazing architecture firms? Or an interaction design studio, interior design agency, or photographer's studio? Now's your chance! Kansas City Design Week is thrilled to invite you to Open Studio Night, hosted in the KC Crossroads district. Design studios, architecture firms, and local spaces will open their doors from 5:30 - 8:30 pm, and invite the public in for a one-of-a-kind studio crawl.
Drop into your favorite studios, or swing by the places you missed last year. Once again we're bringing design to the streets of our city's most vibrant creative neighborhood. From large firms like Barkley, Helix, Larson Binkley and HOK, to small studios like Reactor Design, Wheat Photography, and El Dorado; this is your shot to see the variety of creative talent that exists within a few blocks from each other.
Beyond a tour of the space, these studios will offer up creative experiences that highlight their unique skills and services. If you're a student, this is your chance to learn more about what kind of studio you want to join. If you're looking for a collaborator to work with you on a new exciting project, now you can get an inside look and meet new people. Or maybe you just want to check out the Crossroads competition.
Open Studio Night is completely FREE. Check back here to see all participating studios, and to grab the official Open Studio Night Map!
After roaming through the studios, be sure to attend the KCDW Opening Party, April 8, from 8:30-11:30 pm at the Monarch Room. The Opening Party is a separate ticketed event; tickets available for $15, or $20 at the door. You can find more details about this party to kick-off KCDW 2016 here.
