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:
> Atomic Indy
> Cincinnati Modernation
> Modern Ridgewood
> Modern Capital
> Jet Modern
> Back Garage
> Apartment Therapy Chicago
> Indianapolis Museum of Art Blog
Somebody pinch me.
I’ve been invited to attend a VIP architecture tour in Columbus, IN this weekend (including the IMA’s Miller House) Huge deal. Stay. Tuned. Can’t wait? Find out more here and follow the hotness on twitter: #COLMCM
I know Easter was yesterday, but I thought I’d share this Blob VB3 Egg House by Design dmvA with you:
Drop this egg into your backyard for an impromptu office space, storage or guest room complete with a kitchen, bathroom and shower. Inside there are many storage grids some large enough to sleep in. It certainly has more personality than the average guesthouse and more fun than a metal shed.
