KC Design Week: Relearning the Lost Art of Small-Scale Development
Hosted by KC Design Week and KC Incremental Development Alliance, Relearning the Lost Art of Small-Scale Development is a presentation that will bring together four design-focused small-scale developers working within historic areas of Kansas City.

The presentation will feature the presenters’ experiences with small-scale development projects, design process, insights on historical context, integrating design into existing neighborhoods, and the importance of efficiency and design for developers.
The event will take place on Monday, April 25, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at PH Coffee, and is free to attendees.
