We are 2 Master of Architecture students from Washington University, St. Louis.
This blog is a way for us to explore the red herrings of the architecture, art, and design world as we continue our education in a study abroad semester in Helsinki, Finland. Helsinki is the design capital of the world, 2012 so it is a thrilling time to be here. We want to share events and ideas we encounter -- from the explicitly design oriented to everything else.
We are Brian Driska and Bronwyn Charlton -- coming from different backgrounds -- Brian from construction and industrial design and Bronwyn from theory, poetry, and costume design -- we find that our experiences sometimes clash but often enrich each other. We humbly hope that by sharing our ideas and experiences here we will grow in our understanding!
We welcome your comments! Please don’t use our images or words without asking us first…Almost surely we will say YES!
We are two MArch students from Washington University St Louis who are traveling for a semester abroad to Helsinki, the arctic circle, and Baltic region. Helsinki is currently the 2012 design capital and we are getting to participate in extensive design related seminars and events that we wish to blog about. We are interested in using this blog to share/explore ideas and experiences about design, art, architecture and culture as we experience it.
