This winter my son suddenly gained an interest in playing chess. Got him a set and we are now at the point where he is beating me.. But: As much as i I love the logic and beaty of the #game itself the chess #piezes and boards that are available are either baroque overdetailed or kitch ones made from stone, metal etc. Often there is not a #lot of difference in the looks of the piezes and that makes the game less easy to read. Yet another field where modernism has a lot to offer! With simplicity and clarity in mind off to the drawing board. Liked this video a lot (and the soundtrack is read more...

The longer I am away from blogging, the more projects keep piling up and the more overwhelmed I #feel about wr#iting again. It is funny how that works, isn't it?I didn't realize how long my break from writing was until I received several emails from some of you who were somewhat concerned about my absence. I very much appreciate being missed, and I promise I will do my best to try to post more regularly. It is just that some#times getting back into a routine can be tough. I certainly have been busy. Even though it is only mid-July, as I designer I realize that the autumn and holiday read more...

I am spending the Summer of 2017 upgrading our local city #park. I donate my labor, and either a local non-profit or the City pays for the materials cost. I wanted a showcase item for the park, and decided to make it a 22 foot diameter Victorian style gazebo. It took me 3 attempts to finally get the #design right in Google Sketchup. This is a “walk-through” design with the concrete floor the same height as the sidewalks in the park.
