sustain

pencil in sketchbook, a5, 2012

 

 

amsterdam was something of a epiphany in terms of design and function. not only did things there seem to be designed to last but also to do the job you need of them. this seems less and less the case in britain where ‘spectacular’ design or ‘convenience’ design seem to flirt with the avant-guarde or even sci-fi but don’t do what’s required for them. naturally i include architecture in this. good design is essential for sustainability.
