“radical architecture”

22 09 2008

So, I’ve been thinking a lot about object translation lately.  It seems to be on of the solutions to helping me get somewhere with my 351 project about the mirror.  So recently when I look at design, I almost immediately think of it as object translation.  While on the blog THINGS TO LOOK AT, I came across these architectural magazines. It’s interesting to be because of the space all of these magazines are put it.  Because they are all up on a wall, instead of in a stack on someone’s desk or coffee table, it makes more of an impact.  I would start to see more similarity’s in them all because they are all being shown together, which is why my mind went straight to thinking about them as object translation.  

starting to look

Now that I feel a little more comfortable with the idea of blogging, I was able to start to explore what is out there for me to look at.  I never would of imagined the endless amount of design, and art there is to look at.  I started to notice that the kind of blogs I enjoyed looking at the most were definitely ones that had a variety of types of design.  Being able to stay on one person’s blog and have the option to look at everything from web design to typography is very exciting to me.  One blog in particular that did that for me was Things to look at.  I really enjoyed the variety of contents on this blog.  While I was looking at that blog, it led me to another link that was really interesting.  The way the web site was set up, and the way the tabs and content moved around was very unique and clever. I found my self clicking on all the tabs just to see them move, and I noticed the flow of the page in no time at all.
