During the summer I looked forward to the new issues of Dwell, Atomic Ranch, Case Da Abitare, and a few others. But in this school-basketball frenzy I've completely forgotten about those magazines. They were my exclusive sources of learning and I've dropped them.
Today, I'll be attending a lecture/interview by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. I don't know who this guy is but he's done many projects (large and small) that have a serenly oriental feel. Think forbidden kingdom courtyards, simple, light, uncluttered, strict, and perfectly clean. From the few pictures I've seen, that's the feeling I get from his houses and buildings.
With magazines and a lecture in my future, today is going to be full of learning.
