Using urban design to make our lives more enjoyable and create wealth

This site is for all those interested in the making of cities and towns, and especially the lives of the humans that inhabit them. Kevin Klinkenberg is an architect and urban designer who's practiced from coast-to-coast. 

[ My work experience ]

For twenty years I've worked as a professional architect and planner. Ten of those years I was a partner and co-founder of 180 Urban Design & Architecture in Kansas City, which worked on projects in 27 states for all manner of public and private clients. In 2010, I created a new company called K2 Urban Design, based in Savannah, GA and worked in that arena for four years, before taking my current position with Savannah Development and Renewal Authority. From the beginning, I have focused my energies on those who aim for successful walkable and sociable places. If you'd like more information on me and my experience, keep scrolling down the page.
