* Architecture + Design: Dignifying Design

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 7 October 2012

Architecture + Design: Dignifying Design: “..(A) new breed of public-interest designers proceeds from a belief that everybody deserves good design, whether in a prescription bottle label that people can more easily read and understand, a beautiful pocket park to help a city breathe or a less stressful intake experience at the emergency room. Dignity may be to the burgeoning field of public-interest design as justice is to the more established public-interest law..” Excellent, inspirational, motivational article on public-interest design and architecture in The New York Times..

The article includes a 9-image slideshow, here.

* Architecture: Architecture and the Lost Art of Drawing by Michael Graves, Architect

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 2 September 2012

Architecture: Architecture and the Lost Art of Drawing by Michael Graves, Architect: “..IT has become fashionable in many architectural circles to declare the death of drawing. What has happened to our profession, and our art, to cause the supposed end of our most powerful means of conceptualizing and representing architecture?..”  The world-renowned architect and designer, Michael Graves, has written a very interesting article in The New York Times, on the relationship between architecture, thought, creativity and drawing..

A 15-image slideshow accompanies the article, here.
