Magazine Love. 2012.

I still like a good magazine.  The iPad is great, but there’s still something about an actual, physical magazine that the iPad can’t quite replace.  Here are my current monthly reads/skims.

  Wired – a nice dose of technology, innovation, and science.

  Fast Company – Longtime reader.  Starting to feel a little tired, but can’t seem to let go yet.

  Food & Wine – the title says it all.

  Dwell – love, love, love great design & architecture. Makes me wish I lived in New Zealand.

  Wallpaper - art, architecture, design, fashion. Need I say more?

  Monocle – by far, my favorite. Pricey but worth it. Global affairs, business, culture & design.

What are your favorites?

Nice Curves

Loved the article in this month’s WIRED magazine about Bill Zahner and his work designing and creating steel & metal facades for some pretty impressive buildings.  Check it out if you get a chance.

While reading the article, I was reminded of the excellent use of space and creative facade work I saw last week while visiting NewHope Church in LA where my friend Charles Lee serves as Lead Pastor.  Here’s a photo of their space:

They did a great job of taking this small, plain, rectangular space and giving it a fresh, clean feel – which undoubtedly impacts the experience side for those gathering in the space.  Great job NewHope!

Let’s be inspired by the curves!

PS – Gotta watch this time-lapse construction video of Cooper Union.
