The upcoming consumer is the millennial generation and tiny homes are perfect given the skyrocketing prices for real estate and avocados. Handcrafted Movement is a company that is here to bridge that gap between homes and budgets, in their words they have been created to create – what better motto when you build beautiful spaces right?One of their projects that I absolutely loved was the Pacific Harbor mode...

Explaining Why the Former Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture School is Shutting Down

The trouble began in 2014. What was then called the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, established by the American architect in 1940, received some unwelcome news: The Higher Learning Commission, an agency that accredits colleges and universities, had implemented new rules that would negate that school's accreditation.Without that accreditation, graduates of the school would lose their eligibility to take the Architectural Registration Examination; in other words, they could not become l...

Here's the Letter I Wrote to a Parent Asking About Industrial Design Schools for Their Child

Through random circumstance, I recently met an engineer with two teenaged children. The older of the teenagers is a junior in high school and interested in pursuing industrial design. After learning what I did for a living, the engineer sent me an e-mail asking advice about ID schools. I tend to give non-traditional advice, and here's what I wrote back to him--please tell me what you think I missed (I'm sure there's plenty), and what I may have gotten wrong. It was a bit off the top of my head.(...

A Design Professor's Advice on Design Crits: How to Give Them, How to Take Them

[Title photo by @plqml on Unsplash]Those of you who went to design school: Do you remember how apprehensive you were before a design crit?

I don't mean that hyperbolically--he had to be removed from the room by a mental health professional. (Two of you who went to school with me are reading this, and...

Openings Of Norway’s New Munch And National Museums Are Delayed

Simplifying And Minimalizing Our Lives: What If It Doesn’t “Spark Joy”?

It is rarely acknowledged, by either the life-hack-minded authors or the proponents of minimalist design, that many people have minimalism forced upon them by circumstances that render impossible a serene, jewel-box life style. Nor do they mention that poverty and trauma can make frivolous possessions seem like a lifeline rather than a burden. Many of today’s gurus maintain that minimalism can be useful no matter one’s income, but the audience they target is implicitly affluent—the pitch...

Arts Council England’s New Plan Imagines A Different Role For The Arts

The emphasis on participation – on culture as something that more people should actually do – is newer. This is the difference between being in a play or a band and buying tickets to watch them, and for ACE to play a more active role in promoting the former would be beneficial. This begins in childhood, and ACE clearly hopes that the government will think again about policies that have seen music, drama and other arts subjects systematically downgraded in favour of science, technology and...
