The Day the Hindenburg Burst Into Flames

From the wreckage of a collapsed timeline I will report to you three things: Music will please even the deaf. Art will please even the blind. Kindness will please more than the recipient.

Architecture Studio, a new set from Lego, comes with 1,210 white and translucent bricks. More notable is what it lacks: namely, instructions for any single thing you’re supposed to build with it. Instead, the kit is accompanied by a thick, 277-page guidebook filled with architectural concepts and building techniques alongside real world insights from prominent architecture studios from around the globe. In other words, this box o’ bricks is a little different. Where past Lego products might have had the happy ancillary effect of nurturing youngsters’ interest in architecture, here, that’s the entire point.

Seventy-three different kinds of bricks are included in the set. But bricks are easy to find. It’s the guidebook that’s truly new. Its pages offer accessible overviews of basic architectural concepts, along with illustrated exercises for exploring them in Lego form. Pages on negative space and interior sections, for example, encourage budding builders to think not only about how their miniature creations look from the outside but also in terms of what sorts of spaces they contain within them.

I almost want this.

oh my gOD

Okay Tumblr, I need your help.

Are you a woman and know how to do web design?

 I would like to turn this picture I’ve drawn of 210 women into an educational website.  Something simple (I hazard) where you click a face and it takes you to some info. on that person.  I seek no profit for myself; it would be nice if people could donate to a (tbc) women’s charity if they wanted a copy of the picture. 

Of course, you could just download the pic and print it off yourself too…

My official words describing why I did this and who’s in the picture will come later, but if you’re interested please drop me a line.

Deadline: International Women’s Day (that gives us a few months at least).
