Pointless Diagrams | A new, meaningless diagram drawn daily, just 'cause.
"I started this blog because for as long as I can remember I’ve always drawn and doodled 3d sketches that have an unapologetic dearth of meaning."

Exuma (musician) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Macfarlane Gregory Anthony Mackey, who recorded as Exuma (18 February 1942 – 25 January 1997) was a Bahamian musician, known for his almost unclassifiable music: a strong mixture of carnival, junkanoo, calypso and ballad."

Kanye Stops By Harvard To Give A Speech About Design
"I believe that utopia is actually possible—but we’re led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political. So in no way am I a politician—I’m usually at my best politically incorrect and very direct. I really appreciate you guys’ willingness to learn and hone your craft, and not be lazy about creation."

Working out of the Box: Bryan Boyer | Features | Archinect
"Architecture education has been a great platform for me, but there are also some glaring gaps. I regret not learning more about real estate, finance, economics, and business when I was in school. These concerns are not external to architecture, they're what shape it. Too bad I learned to appreciate professional practice courses five years after I graduated! "

"Do you have an interest in returning to architecture?

It is incredibly satisfying to draw something exquisite from time to time, and the inescapable tangibility of architecture is a true pleasure. For a while I fulfilled this by working on books and posters and other media, and I should add that being the client for design work can be its own very rewarding experience. At Sitra I was lucky to be able to work with great people like TwoPoints, Rumors, KOKO3, Arup, and Sauerbruch Hutton. Clearing the way for them to do their best work felt useful and meaningful.

Still, for me there's nothing quite as nice as standing in a room you helped design."

David Galbraith’s Blog » About me
"I worked as an architect for Norman Foster on projects ranging from the Kings Cross Masterplan & Channel Tunnel Terminal, to Foster’s apartment. In Paris, I worked for Valode et Pistre on a Lyon University scheme and briefly for Jean Nouvel on the Euro Lille project.

Having gotten stuck on large scale projects which take forever and involve doing toilet details for six months, I begged and begged to work for Fisher Park who designed stadium sets for what they called the ‘dinosaur’ bands: Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and U2. What could possibly be more fun.

After Fisher Park, I set up a design practice in London, where we did event & trade sets and retail design, mainly for Levis and Caterpillar. We were featured in Building Design and Blueprint and shortlisted for a Millennium Bridge competition. I knew a bit about computers, so when the web took off in earnest in ’94 we did some early database driven websites and more wacky stuff such as a 3d search engine."

The Action is the Form: Victor Hugo’s TED Talk - Strelka Institute for media, architecture and design
"If Victor Hugo came back to give a TED talk, he might assert that architecture, which he once claimed had been killed by the book, is reincarnate as something more powerful still – as information itself. If this space is a secret weapon, says Keller Easterling, it is a secret best kept from those trained to make space – architects. Meanwhile, entrepreneurs in economics, the social sciences, informatics and activism are developing what might be called spatial software as a political instrument to outwit politics as usual."

Creator Curator: SFMOMA's Joseph Becker on Sets, Space, and Sailing | California College of the Arts
"Does the curatorial position satisfy your architect's itch to design spaces?

The collective experience of a gallery space is not so different from what you're aiming for as an architect. In one situation, you're experiencing information in the context of a thesis. In the other, you're experiencing the look and feel of the space as you move through it. It's about how you tell the story. Having worked on projects as an architect, I was a little turned off by the realities of architecture: the pace, the client's needs, budget constraints, and your personal vision getting squashed. Exhibition design is a big component of my job, and a huge part of communicating curatorial ideas effectively. Getting to exercise my architecture training here affords a really great balance, and I haven't completely lost sight of role of the traditional architect. I'm still at times torn between the two worlds -- the auteur architect creating new spaces, and the curator presenting new information."

Jonathan Meades: Architects are the last people who should shape our cities | Art and design | The Guardian
"If we want to understand the physical environment we should not ask architects about it. After all, if we want to understand charcuterie we don't seek the opinion of pigs. Architects make the error of confusing a physical environment with what they impose on it. Wrong. What is going on around us is the product of innumerable forces. Accidents – some happy, some not – clashes of scale and material, municipal idiocies and corporate boasts – these are some of the more salient determinants of our urban and suburban and extra-urban environments. Buildings are, of course, the major component of these environments. Some of those buildings will be the work of architects. But with the exception of those places where they have been granted the licence to do what they yearn to do – to start from zero – architects have less influence than they believe."

"New buildings are simple: imagination and engineering. New places are not. It seems impossible to achieve by artifice the parts with no name, the pavement's warts and the avenue's lesions, the physical consequences of changed uses, the waste ground, the apparently purposeless plots."

Spatial Agency: About
Spatial Agency is a project that presents a new way of looking at how buildings and space can be produced. Moving away from architecture's traditional focus on the look and making of buildings, Spatial Agency proposes a much more expansive field of opportunities in which architects and non-architects can operate. It suggests other ways of doing architecture.

In the spirit of Cedric Price the project started with the belief that a building is not necessarily the best solution to a spatial problem. The project attempts to uncover a second history of architecture, one that moves sharply away from the figure of the architect as individual hero, and replaces it with a much more collaborative approach in which agents act with, and on behalf of, others.

Island | Yutaka Sone at David Zwirner | Spoon & Tamago
Originally trained as an architect, Sone’s obsession with landscape and construction have led him to produce similar pieces that replicate Hong Kong Island, Los Angeles highway junctions, a mountain range, a section of a rainforest, ski resorts, and his own backyard.

you are here - leah meisterlin
A map says to you, "Read me carefully, follow me closely, doubt me not."
It says, "I am the earth in the palm of your hand. Without me, you are alone and lost."1

For these and many other reasons, Leah Meisterlin is crazy about maps. Featured here is some of her work.
