Back in October, in the last post I made (sorry about that; if I just made more time...), I mentioned the BTSF Google Hangout interview I conducted with my friend Jes Stafford. We talked for about an hour about what I had been working on at the time, which gives a pretty full overview of the trailer project and a few other things. Now it's been made available for all to see, and I'd love for you to watch it and let me know your comments and reactions.
After about 10 months in design (so far; it's complicated), this Friday at 11:00am Pacific Time, I'll be showing off my trailer project as it stands right now on a live Google Hangout that my friend Jes Stafford set up. If you want to see it first hand and hang out with me for an hour or so, head over to this page and sign up to attend the event online. You probably have to have a Google profile to attend the event, but you already knew that. I hope to see you there.
It's funny because it's true.
Benji Wagner makes a compelling case that we have the choice to either become a slave to technology, or to use it as a tool to enable us to physically step out into nature. This sounds exactly like what I want to do with my trailer project.
Project 001 is a bit of a departure for me. I've been engrossed in designing large public works buildings (schools, community centers, libraries, etc.) over the last several years, and I've been wanting to get back to working with a smaller scale and design something without clients and building codes. While those things make the world we live in go around, especially for architects like me, they are both something I would like to ignore for a while.Read More
The first post on a blog has to be the most difficult thing to write, doesn't it? It's proving to be. There is so much I want to say, but if I just spill it all out it will be a complete mess. I keep jumping around trying to figure out what to say first, as if what I say first is any more important that what I say second. The funny thing is that the longer we read someone's writing, the better it gets, so that thinking really negates the need for the first thing to be any good at all. I'm overthinking this, aren't I?Read More
