    Sorry, another diversion.  This week and next week I will be using this blog to write down and record a set of ideas about retail, reflecting on where it is and imagining (what will most likely be very) near future projections about where it might go.  

    As I've been thinking about retail space, I have been circling around the idea that for the specifically American experience, retail/shopping/commercial areas are very important to our understanding of being public.  Retail may also show a glimpse of  the future for architecture more broadly as a 21st century experience.  


    My intention is to first write down what I currently have on paper, then work on collaging and finding reference images for ideas. 


    So.  First retail, then retail collages, then more speculative ideas about what I take from it.  Hopefully a discussion from readers will follow!

    Stay tuned!

About this Blog

I will chronicle my design research and degree project, providing commentary on my thought process at the time. From there, I will transform the body of work into a book which seeks to place into dialogue the two (currently) separated semesters of work.
