A capital ‘D’ for Design.

Now you’ve probably heard the phrase, “Its all by design,” when people refer to the universe, God, or our creator—whichever belief system you live by. Its not by happen chance.

My perspective is the same. Large. Larger than my design life. Too much of design—at this current time in history—is actually decoration. It does not make anything innovative, useful, aesthetic, understandable, unobtrusive, honest, long-lasting, thorough in details, and environmentallyfriendly.

physical space. Terracing land on the side of my home from a 30º angle in two directions to three flat-landings for urban farming. Building a safety fence that sets the tone for future home projects such as: recycling and waste barrier, and mid-century inspired patio deck.
