Meet the Panelists

The first KC Snapshot event entitled "Time to Live" is coming up on May 30.
This event is intended to be a public conversation about how we live in Kansas City today - specifically, how the character and composition of our homes and our neighborhoods can and does influence our daily lives.

We will be joined by a small panel of local, regional and national professionals who will lead the conversation. Below are brief biographies of our invited guests which include links to their own websites.

Karrie Jacobs, the founding editor of Dwell magazine, who has recently turned her attention to writing piquant commentary about architecture and the way we all live in our homes and cities. She is a regular contributor to Metropolis and is the author of The Perfect $100,000 House.

Robert Bruegmann, chair of the Department of Art History at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Robert also teaches in the School of Architecture and the Program in Urban Planning. He is the author of Sprawl: A Compact History, a compelling look that rises above the rhetoric surrounding sprawl and evaluates the history of city growth and its true impacts.

Dan Rockhill is the principal of the Architecture firm Rockhill and Associates and is a professor at the University of Kansas School of Architecture. He is the progenitor of the graduate design school Studio 804 and is responsible for several contemporary residential designs in and around Lawrence, Kansas and the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.

Cyd Millstein has published numerous articles, both locally and nationally, on architectural and preservation-oriented issues. She has also served as assistant editor for the Society of Architectural Historians Newsletter, editor of the SAH Missouri Valley Chapter's Newsletter and architecture critic for The Kansas City Business Journal. Ms. Millstein's firm, Architectural & Historical Research, LLC, was founded in 1983. From 1997-2000, she was a member of the Board of Trustees for the National Association for Olmsted Parks. In 1995-1996, she served as president of the Missouri Valley Chapter Society of Architectural Historians.
