Fall Classics

Fall Classics

This month we decided to let our sugary friends show everyone our favorite fall pastimes and traditions.  What’s better than leaping into a pile of crunchy leaves, grilling up some food, and carving pumpkins in the cool fall air!  Is your favorite fall activity represented?

Keeping it Fresh

Keeping it Fresh

In celebration of clean air month we consider the air freshener and what it might teach us about design. Fresh design takes more than addressing the surface of the problem. It also takes more than an air freshener to actually clean the air we breathe. Clean air helps us run farther, sniff easier, and fly kites higher.  Don’t just cover up icky, stinky air.  Next time you see an air freshener dangling from the trucker’s rear view mirror, think of all the ways you can help keep the air clean!

Or for the adventurous among us, take in the view and the breath of fresh air from the top of these highest peaks, all with conveniently short names.

Today we have…

Today we have…

If you don’t like the weather, just wait around a while.  One of these conditions is bound to emerge.  We love the simple graphic quality of these symbols that illustrate varied conditions.  But we still think there are a few misisng symbols.  What abouty the one for “smoke on the water”?  Or “raining cats and dogs”? Or what would the symbol for a “toad strangler” look like.  Just sayin’…

Be A Hero

Be A Hero

Do you have a problem that needs fixing? Is it something in your house? business? community?  Call the superhero that’s already in your neighborhood – the architect!  Architects are much more than just designers. Throughout years of training and practice we are challenged with the duty of problem solving for the betterment of society. It is our jobs to take a problem and create a positive outcome.  Sometimes this takes superhuman strength. This month we acknowledge our favorite superheros. Do something for a friend, a neighbor, or your community. Be responsible for your actions and the implications that follow and be a hero!

Downtown Intervention

Downtown Intervention

This month we are looking inward.  Rather than stating what our favorite things are elsewhere, let’s talk about what we need to make our downtown our favorite.  What additions or interventions would improve the way we work, play, and live downtown?  In other words, what does our downtown need to be better?  We thought through what additional conveniences, services, connections, configurations, and enjoyments would help add another layer of efficiency, fun, and creativity to our downtown.  We then placed these things on the map to help us visualize how our additions would function within the existing downtown structure.

Have we identified something that you would have chosen, too?
