My dream home

Gabriel Orozco House – Roca Blanca, Mexico.

Thank you, Steve.

1955 – 2011

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Stanford Commencement Address, 2005

Big prints from architectural plotters. Nice effect.

My Weekend Assignment

I’m psyched to learn how to use this wire framing tool – if I can find time this weekend. Brought to you by the friendly looking folks at Balsamiq.

Burd Haus

Modern birdhouse design by Nathan Danials on Etsy. Put. A. Bird. In. It.

Aires Libres

Part of Montreal’s Aires Libres celebration, Pink Balls/Les Boules Roses consists of more than 170,000 pink balls hanging over a 1.2 km distance. By landscape architect Claude Cormier.

Prefab houses

Sign me up for one.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
