Jeremy Graef 2012-03-06T13:44:01-05:00 >2012-03-06T14:04:02-05:00 <p> This gorgeous pre-fab LEED Platinum designed home is an inspiration to the design field. &nbsp;It contains a net-zero carbon footprint, which, according to sources, is the first of its kind. &nbsp;</p> <p> The collaborative work between architects and interior designers has created not only a functional and earth-friendly living environment, but it is also highly affordable; selling for only $179,000!!</p> <p> Follow the attached link for further information.</p> <p> <a href="http://designwire.interiordesign.net/projects/residential/7630/new-low-cost-housing-model-debuts-at-ted2012#the_ID" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://designwire.interiordesign.net/projects/residential/7630/new-low-cost-housing-model-debuts-at-ted2012#the_ID</a></p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://designwire.interiordesign.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/02_Curated.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://designwire.interiordesign.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/04_Curated.jpg"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/27793006/ode-to-my-alma-mater Ode to my Alma Mater Jeremy Graef 2011-11-17T13:05:08-05:00 >2011-11-17T13:05:08-05:00 <p> My wordplay blog for "EXCEED" reminded me of my Alma Mater, California State University, Northridge, or as we liked to call it, C-SUN!</p> <p> The engineering student department, years ago, had created this CSUN work of art at the intersection of Nordhoff Street and Zelzah Avenue in Northridge, California. &nbsp;From any direction, this sculpture clearly reads "CSUN" which I was able to enjoy for the years I attended the Interior Design program.</p> <p> Thought I'd share it with everyone!</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://i.pbase.com/u46/dwinge/upload/29671368.csun2.jpg"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/27791801/reflection Reflection. Jeremy Graef 2011-11-17T12:50:47-05:00 >2012-01-01T21:09:38-05:00 <p> I love playing with the idea of imagery and graphic design using as much simplicity as possible. &nbsp;This "EXCEED" located at the Hamburg Airport in Germany is not only graphically beautiful, but inspirational as well. &nbsp;And it's for the public to enjoy! &nbsp;</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/2o/2ouew0f3el0k4m0f.jpg" title=""></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/26994456/blog-1 Blog .1 Jeremy Graef 2011-11-10T15:13:03-05:00 >2011-11-10T15:13:03-05:00 <p> So this is my first blog ever, and what better to "blog" about than something I have a strong passion for; architecture, interior design and landscape design!</p> <p> I'm kind of stumped right now as for what to write about, but I'm sure with time, it will come naturally and I'll be posting new and exciting information!</p> <p> Stay tuned!</p>
