I love architecture—I’m sure that will be my profession in my next life. So writing as my next-life self, I decided to start a series of posts featuring architecture that is particularly art-y or design-y.
Disclaimer: While I wouldn’t particularly love to live in anything that looks like this, what I do love is Hadid’s sprit and how graphic her style is, even though it’s architecture. It’s like her buildings could be the forms that I might create a pattern or interesting poster with. Neat stuff!
Named by Time in 2010 as an influential thinker, Zaha Hadid is known for her parametric, futuristic, and elongated architecture. Some projects include “The Bridge Pavilion” in Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain, “The Contemporary Arts Center” in Cincinnanti, Ohio and “The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum” in Lansing, Michigan. Hadid received the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004, being the first woman ever to do so. You go, girl! Hadid also most notably designed the aquatics center for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The 7 Cooperative Principle Posters—our latest design collaboration with Cooperation Texas—are now on sale! You can purchase a full set of 7 or an individual poster. They are 18″ x 24″ and high-quality offset printed at a local Austin printer. Your walls look bare, no?
I am happy to announce the completion of the 7 Coop Principle Posters, designed in partnership Cooperation Texas, an organization dedicated to creating sustainable jobs by helping form worker cooperatives. They will be taking pre-orders starting in early January before they do their first print run in late January.
En route to visit family in the Bay Area for Thanksgiving, we had the surprise pleasure to land at the brand new “Virgin America” terminal at the San Francisco airport. It was amazing…from the furniture configuration at the gates to the restaurants—everything was designed to a tee! But what stood out the most were the incredible art installations. Their collection was better than any museum I’ve been to recently. The above photos are of my favorite installation—huge, nebulous blobs hanging from the ceiling made of some sort of netting. They could be something both aquatic or celestial—a jellyfish or galaxy. Super cool to walk underneath and around. Read more →
