A paradox revealed through portraiture

A photograph taken seven years before her passing says much about the life, times and character of the trailblazing Meherbai Tata The much-loved wife of Dorabji Tata and daughter in-law of Jamsetji Tata, the founder of the Tata group, Meherbai Tata was a woman of personality. A participant in the ornamental theatrics of being imperial within Empire, one finds her name regularly among the maharajas, nawabs and begums in royal chronicles. And deservedly so.

Now This Is Zoom Opera That Works — And It’s For Young Kids

“Admittedly, preschoolers, Zoom and opera don’t immediately sound like the makings of a successful project, but each installment I watched of Opera Starts With Oh! — helmed by director, choreographer and teaching artist Emma Jaster and Opera Lafayette community engagement manager Ersian François — kept its grid of budding opera buffs rapt with an action-packed half-hour of activities, performances and assorted operatic antics.” – The Washington Post

A Test Drive, and the Design Story Behind Range Rover's Most Unusual Vehicle

SoHo is one of New York City's most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods--and paradoxically, the best place in Manhattan to see every car design on Earth. On Lafayette, bland rideshare Toyotas share lanes with Teslas. On West Broadway's restaurant row, delivery trucks are wedged in with Lamborghinis, Ferraris, the odd Bugatti. The streets in between are the parking lot of the upper middle class, awash with everything else--primarily crossover SUVs of German and Japanese heritage, so numerous and si...

Illyria - Offering Much, But Not Telling Enough

Reviewed by Judd Hollander The birth pangs of the New York Shakespeare Festival, particularly its conflicts with the New York City Parks Department and city planner Robert Moses are the stuff of theatre legend. Playwright Richard Nelson using those events as the source material for his rather meandering play Illyria , at the Public Theater.

The Unintended Consequences of Providing Free WiFi Kiosks in NYC

"If you design a car," ID professor Bruce Hannah used to tell us at Pratt, "someone will use it to rob a bank." The context: A discussion of how we industrial designers should (or shouldn't) be concerned with how end users might misuse things that we designed. Hannah's point was that it's impossible to account for every scenario.An example of this is NYC's new, free LinkNYC WiFi kiosks, which I first saw popping up downtown in July (at left, the first one I saw).

Horns blare, tempers flare, fingers are extended, cars go nowhere. One cause of tra...

Louisiana residents hit by flooding say weather advisories weren't urgent enough

Last week’s flood in southern Louisiana is being called the worst natural disaster in the United States since Hurricane Sandy, but as recovery efforts continue, it’s become apparent that some residents ignored flash flood warnings. NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday revealed interviews with locals who say they willfully ignored the flash flood warnings.
