back to the future

Well, my brain certainly is a lot more wrinkly after this weekend (that means I learned a lot.)

The Miller House symposium at the IMA whetted my appetite. I was inspired by architects, designers, and mod-lovers. My eyes feasted on vivid Girard prints and retro airline commercials.

The next day was spent in Columbus, getting up close and personal. Here are a few shots from this weekend’s tour. I was already pretty happy with the photos I took last year, so I didn’t end up taking many new ones.

After a long day of touring, walking, thrifting, and making new friends, we all ended up at Bistro 310 (local! sustainable!). All in all, a heaping slice of Columbus in a fairly short amount of time. I’m still waiting to see the CBS Sunday Morning design episode featuring Columbus, IN (I don’t have a TV) that aired yesterday. If anyone spies it on YouTube, let me know.

I ain’t mod atchya

Did you know Columbus, Indiana (about 45 min south of Indy) ranks 6th in the nation for architectural innovation and design? Uh-huh. Is true.

Allow me to name drop: Eero Saarinen, Eliel Saarinen, Harry Weese, I.M. Pei… and more.

I’m still reeling from this weekend’s whirl-wind architecture tour. See, what happened was this: Columbus Visitor Center invited a whole bunch of design bloggers from across the country for a VIP tour, including me. You can follow this weekend’s play by play here: #COLMCM and check out some of the pictures I shot on Flickr. Expect more blog posts in the following days.

Aside from all the MCM eye candy, there were also a ton of cool people to hang out with. Go ahead, give ‘em some love:

Cincinnati Modernation

Modern Ridgewood

Urbanophile

Plastolux

Modern Capital
