MUST SEE!!! KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY HIPSTER HOME DESIGN AND GENTRIFICATION!!!



Take a look at a really nice slideshow that obscures the ugly reality of middle-class white people moving back to the urban core and displacing longtime residents by way of trendy new designs that wouldn't pass code in the suburbs . . .

K.C. Cool: 7 Striking Designs in Kansas City, Missouri

More deets from Dwell magazine . . .

"It's easy to overlook Kansas City, Missouri. Located squarely in the nation's center, it is better known for its barbecue and bebop than as an incubator for creative design and architecture. But the city's image is evolving . . . A cohort of daringly inventive local architects are designing and renovating homes in visually striking ways."

In fairness, some of these photographs are really striking and memorable not only for the creative lines and breathtaking architecture but also because so many hipsters have LOST FORTUNES ON KANSAS CITY REAL ESTATE SPECULATION and failed account for THE GREATER FOOL THEORY in their grand designs.

Time for the star to promote more condos that will be empty in a year.

That's usually their real estate special dedicated to these guys.

Is this the one where folks move into old Chinese shipping containers on stilts and we're thinking the next Frank Lloyd Wright has arrived?

Wildman, don't be in a bad mood. You live so far out of the loop and the city that you should look at this all with enthusiasm.

Hyde Park bus stops....just breathtakingly bad.
Someone toiled away for 6+ years to create... those?
My backyard coop has more aesthetic appeal and will likely age better than that design abortion.

Really looks like a warm and inviting place to wait for the bus...

Locally, Kansas City, Mo., is best known for graffiti and trash, and negroes killing negroes. Also schools where the kids are too stupid to learn.

It's all really boring shit. Quasi- pseudo- neo- retro- Bauhaus bow-wow deconstructionist postmodern bullshit. All of it. Bunch of hicks with too much money runnin amok. Except it doesn't look like too much money ... looks like all the building materials came from a Target store. Bulldozers! Now!
