Save March 27th for an appearance by the MoCoLab at the Kansas City Center for Architecture & Design, 1810 McGee, Kansas City, Mo. It's part of Kansas City Design Week Celebration. Associate Prof. Shannon Criss said that the MoCoLab will be outfitted with an exhibit of KU Department of Architecture student work with a special emphasis on public interest design.

According to College Atlas, architect is the #1 sexiest job for men. They write, "If there’s one thing a woman wants in a man, it’s commitment and stability. Nothing screams commitment like something that is built on a concrete foundation and set in stone: literally. Go ahead, then. Design something that will last forever. You won’t hear any complaints from the ladies." Read the rest of the list here: http://bit.ly/1Dz6PvE
