Let’s take a bold step into some trending technology. It's Tuesday and this interesting link delves into what's trending in architecture and interior design. Click on this interview with Steven South of Perkins+Will. Once you’ve digested it, make your way back here.
This intriguing interview spells change moving forward as it relates to the design of interior space and architecture. It can also be certain to impact those in the field of landscape architecture, specifically if what one views inside looking out can be altered with personal preferences displayed on glass.
Our world is creating a vision for tangible exterior spaces and all good design is a collaborative; it’s multidisciplinary. So what in these Tuesday trends will drive design as we know it? According to South, “Glass is an important medium that’s allowing for customization, a trend being driven by Gen Y’s individualism.” This excerpt from Cath Crowley sums up glass for what it is. “If you treat glass right, it doesn't crack.

So back to the garden and outdoor nature lovers. Hopefully, I’m not sweeping up the Cucumber and Crocus crumbs off the floor this morning. Many followers arrive here seeking tidbits and inspiration for all things green. But every once in a while it’s important to still take a road trip to what our business is all about - landscape architecture and design. Plus #TrendingTuesday is a perfect day to swap out green, insert glass. It is certain to impact those in the design field. But nothing changes our number one recommendation - always keep a close connection to the earth. It seems logical for what’s important to reflect in your piece of glass.
