    some random reading that you may want to labor through this holiday:

     

    bim needs ownership - will the architects rise up and take the territory? ever?

     

    a good selection of seamless panorama's of alvar aalto's interiors are now available through google views. (and while you're at it, revisit dan hill's thoughts on finlandia hall, aalto's greatest 'mistake' ever?)

     

    i'm not sure if yves behar is truly the most influential designer in the world, but his business model is certainly one of the more sustainable. you can check out some recent articles here and here, coming on the heels of fuseproject's partial buyout by a chinese conglomerate (reportedly 46m for a 75% stake).  

     

    in a related story, google x announced its acquisition of gecko design, to help beef up it's internal design team relative to hardware based projects.

     

    finally, amazon's launched it's own 3d printing service/storefront. is nothing sacred any more? 

     

    have a good weekend y'all!

About this Blog

Central to the blog is a long running interest in how we construct practices that enable and promote the kind of work we are all most interested in. From how firms are run, structured, and constructed, the main focus will be on exploring, expanding and demystifying how firms operate. I’ll be interviewing different practices – from startups to nationally recognized firms, bringing to print at least one a month. Our focus will be connecting Archinect readers with the business of practice.
