  • However you illuminate your outdoor room, adding light is crucial to extending the hours you can use the space, Mr. Williams said. “Otherwise, it all goes away after the sun sets.”
  • Some methods of adding light are simpler than others. “You can hang a candle chandelier from a tree branch or have lanterns with candles,” Ms. Moss said. “It’s very romantic.”
  • If your outdoor room will serve as a dining space, Mr. Shrader said, “You really need to think about it like you’re in an indoor dining room and hosting Thanksgiving dinner.”
  • “I try really hard to make the outdoors just as comfortable and chic as the indoors,” Mr. Moon said, “so people really want to spend time out there.”
  • “It’s not a physical wall, but more of a visual separation that says, ‘Something is happening here,’” Ms. Moss said. “It could even be a 3-foot hedge that defines the space.”
  • “Everybody feels most comfortable when they’re tucked under something,” he said.Putting a seating area beneath the canopy of a tree is one of his favorite techniques. “Often, I talk about trees as my outdoor ceilings,” he said.
  • “It gives that softness that really makes it feel like a room,” he said, noting that it is surprisingly easy to keep clean. “You just vacuum it like a normal rug.”
  • For instance, he said, “if the house has soft, pale colors, we’ll tend to pick that up in the landscaping” through the choice of outdoor fabrics and flowers.
  • “I try to blend the materials and make them all uniform so that you don’t have anything super jarring, and it’s all very harmonious,” he said.
  • “I always start inside the house and work my way out,” he said, with the goal of achieving “an effortless flow from inside to outside.”
  • “Or maybe it’s just a space for hiding from everyone,” Ms. Moss said, which would require greater privacy and perhaps just a single chaise longue.
  • “You want to ask yourself, first and foremost, ‘What are we going do there?’” said Charlotte Moss, a New York-based designer and a passionate gardener.
  • In short, you need to think of it as another room in your home — an outdoor room — and furnish it accordingly.
  • If you want an outdoor space where you’ll be comfortable lingering for hours, he said, you need to address some basic questions: “Can you be protected from the sun? Can you put a drink down? Can you put your feet up?”

  • Orders will be placed through Uber and fulfilled by Cornerstore. Screenshots of the app experience will show that it looks pretty familiar to other online grocery experiences, where you choose your time slot, add items (including how many you want), and are pointed to delivery with a no-contact option available. If you happen to live in Miami or Dallas and are an Eats Pass and/or Uber Pass member, you'll receive free grocery delivery on orders over $30.
  • "Over the last six months, it’s become increasingly clear that grocery delivery is not only popular, but often a necessity," the company wrote in the blogpost: "We expect to see this trend continue as people across the world look for new ways to save time and stay safe. We’re excited to be on this journey alongside the popular grocery delivery startup Cornershop to make this a reality today."
  • Uber said that the decision came after testing the service and seeing 197 percent increase in deliveries from grocery and convenience stores on Uber since March.
  • Today, Uber announced it would be teaming up with Cornershop to offer customers in select cities in Latin America and Canada the ability to order groceries through both the Uber and Uber Eats apps.

  • Today, Uber announced it would be teaming up with Cornershop to offer customers in select cities in Latin America and Canada the ability to order groceries through both the Uber and Uber Eats apps. Following that launch, grocery delivery will be available in Miami, FL, and Dallas, TX, later this month. It's not clear when or if they'll be expanding to other U.S. cites.
  • As soon as COVID-19 and its related social distancing restrictions hit, demand for grocery delivery skyrocketed. And as the world continues to practice social isolation and quarantine, many companies are expanding their online grocery offerings or dipping their toes into that sphere for the first time. The latest to get into the game in a bigger way is Uber.

  • Spring Rolls, Vietnam
  • Kangaroo has long been eaten by Australia‘s Aborigines. The meat has lots of protein but very little fat. It can be prepared much the same as other meats—as a roast, skewered, or made into sausages or medallions. The meat is best cooked medium rare to medium in order to capture the flavors.
  • Queso helado is reminiscent of frozen rice pudding flavored with cinnamon. Some say it’s like creamy shaved ice. It’s made from sweet milk with a touch of coconut or cinnamon. Arequipa, Peru, might be the birthplace of queso helado, as noted by the excessive number of shops and street carts advertising their own version.
  • Queso Helado, Peru
  • Lobster rolls include a lightly buttered, toasted hot dog bun stuffed with any combination of claw, knuckle, and tail meat.

Lobster rolls are served with chips, fries, or pickles.
  • Lobster Rolls, U.S.A.
  • Spinach, chunks of paneer cheese, and spices make up this vegetarian Indian favorite, typically served with rice and a side of warm naan. Paneer is a unique and versatile dairy product. This non-melting cheese typically has the consistency of tofu (which is actually a recommended substitution if you are preparing the dish without paneer). Second, the making of paneer does not involve rennet. This makes the cheese completely lacto-vegetarian and a key source of protein for vegetarians.
  • Saag Paneer, India

  • Depending on where you are in the Balkans, the type of meat used in the dish may differ—usually pork, lamb, beef, or a combination of the three. Cevapcici is prepared with onions and garlic and then grilled, boiled, or fried. Five to 10 finger-sized pieces of sausage are often served with home-baked breads used to make sandwiches. On the side you’ll typically find ajvar, a spread that will have you licking your fingers to get every last bit of the roasted red peppers.
  • Cevapcici, Balkan States
  • A popular Vietnamese spring roll dish is nem nuong cuon, which is grilled pork sausage wrapped in rice paper with lettuce, cucumber, carrot, daikon, and mint served with a (usually secret) special sauce.

Nem nuong cuon and goi cuon can be found at food carts and in practically every restaurant in the country.

  • Bubble Tea (boba milk tea, bōbà nǎichá; pearl milk tea, zhēnzhū nǎichá) Bubble Tea is a Taiwanese invention, but now it is popular in many areas of East Asia, and it has been introduced in Europe and America. It was invented in the city of Taichung or in Tainan (there is controversy about who invented it first) in Taiwan in the 1980s. It is basically tea with milk and/or fruit plus chewy white or black tapioca balls. The original style of bubble tea was tea or milk tea with tapioca balls included.

  • We recently finished an upscale restaurant called Mamahumu, which just opened at the start of this year. Looking deeper into 2020, we'll have more exciting projects opening: two San Francisco residences, a second HQ for our tech client Checkr in a historic brick-and-timber building in downtown Denver, a new headquarters for Lightstep HQ, and the gathering space COMMONS, in Oakland, with Ayofemi.
  • When I’m not working, I’m gardening, listening to and playing music, reading, and doing yoga.
  • This was the first we did with Oxossi (also known as Binta) as part of the work we are doing with her in Oakland. We discussed the process of making a portal for gathering, sound and sustenance, and exploring contemporary architecture, race, buildings, urban subjects, and urban material.
  • I admire so many designers and hoteliers: Patricia Urquiola, Herzog & de Meuron, Olafur Eliasson, Ian Schrager, Studio Tack, Roman & Williams. I love to stay at The Marlton Hotel when I visit my kids in New York.
  • My mantras are: manage the thresholds, the back of house is as important as front of the house, and always hear the space—acoustics, acoustics, acoustics.
  • All of our projects are inspired by context and place. Tartine Inner Sunset was conceived as an extension of Golden Gate Park, specifically the Conservatory of Flowers. The design consists of a series of rooms that transition from open garden for protected al fresco dining to sky-lit patio to light-washed dining room. Tartine Berkeley was designed as an articulated, historic sunroom. It’s a narrow, long shoebox full of daylight and opportunity.
  • When Piper Stremmel, the proprietor, came to us, it was clear she was going to be massively successful, and her confidence in us made it such fun to collaborate. We envisioned a master plan with the central courtyard as the hub of the complex. The ground-floor bar has a colorful terrazzo top, sunny ceramic tile backsplash, and bead-board wainscot. Rooms have custom plywood beds, American-made lighting, and local art. Across the courtyard is Estella Tacos y Mezcal, built into a stand-alone structure historically used as a blacksmith shop. 
  • It has been through a few incarnations. Studio BBA was born in 2018 after my former business partner Seth Boor left Boor Bridges Architecture. We were often referred to as BBA so changing the name was a natural move, and Studio emphasizes the importance of our talented staff. We’re currently four and are recruiting.
  • I was working professionally, but didn’t discover the world of ideas until UT, Austin. Learning about phenomenology, the study of things as they appear in our experience, made my mind explode.  Hence, a few years later I returned to academia at Harvard. I developed this idea of the subjectivity of difference. The value of a building is not that of an object or edifice. It’s the experience of inhabitation that is the source of value and meaning in design.
  • I applied to three architecture schools in the West and chose the farthest one from home. I received a strong modern-design education rooted in sustainability. In addition, I started racing bicycles and spent a ton of time outdoors. I was recruited out of school to work with Gresham Larson in Tucson, where I learned to dream and be practical at the same time.
  • She almost always wanted to be an architect, after initial hopes of becoming a mathematician were quelled by receiving her first C in math. Frustrated, she turned to art classes as a creative outlet—and loved them. Architecture, she decided, would combine her passions for both subjects.
  • Frustrated
  • First of all, she’s a brainiac. Bridges earned her PhD in architectural theory from Harvard’s Graduate School of design, following a master’s degree with honors from The University of Texas at Austin, and a bachelor of architecture degree from the University of Arizona.

  • Roti: Naan is popular on Indian restaurant menus, but roti is a staple in Indian homes. Roti is a no fuss Indian bread, typically made with whole wheat flour that’s kneaded into a soft dough, then rolled into thin circles and cooked on a tava (Indian skillet) on the stovetop.
  • Naan: Naan is one of the most popular Indian flatbreads. To make a naan, wheat flour dough is prepared either by allowing it to rise using yeast, or by the addition of yogurt to the dough. That dough is then rolled into flatbreads and cooked in an Indian oven, called a tandoor.

  • We stole plants from China and India, sailed all the way back home, dried them, crushed them, drowned them in boiling water then mixed the whole thing with milk and sugar. We now delude ourselves that there isn't a crisis that can't be resolved simply by brewing up a pot of tea.
  • Was it the 18th-century literary giant Dr. Johnson who said that when a man is tired of Christmas pudding, he is tired of life? That said, Johnson suffered terribly from gout.
  • History will probably one day reveal that the English Civil War of 1642-1651 was started by two idiots who couldn't agree on whether the jam or cream went on the scone first.This is still a cause of division in the country that makes our bickering over Brexit seem tame and reasonable by comparison.
  • We built an empire and subjugated many a nation to protect our right to eat fish and chips out of an old bit of newspaper. At least I think that's what British colonialism was about. Either way, we'd go to war with the world all over again if our fried fish in batter was ever under threat.
  • A rolled up cake made of shredded fat filled with jam. Something like this could only be conjured from the imagination of a nation that also gave you The Beatles, the World Wide Web and fox hunting.
  • In China, it's fried with egg. In Japan, it's served cold with raw fish. There's only one way we serve our rice in Britain: overcooked and drowned in milk and sugar..
  • Or perhaps the way that the Queen Of England (probably) prefers it: cut into chunks, combined with the vital organs of a sheep and stuffed inside a gigantic bucket of pastry?
  • The heroin of desserts. In some upper-class areas of Britain, you can't move for the aristocrats passed out in the gutter having overdosed on this intoxicating mixture of meringue, cream and fruit.
  • Can't decide on dessert? Let trifle solve the conundrum. Layer one pudding on top of another pudding on top of another and cover it all with whipped cream.
  • A sausage wrapped in an egg (and various other ingredients that make up pastry).
  • An egg wrapped in a sausage
  • By which we mean, fish sticks, oven-cooked french fries and canned beans in tomato sauce.By the age of 16, the average British child will have eaten this dish 4,160 times.
  • Not a pie but a gigantic swamp of brown meat and gravy hidden beneath a thick blanket of mashed potato. Excessive consumption of this dish risks triggering a neurological condition known as "mash psychosis."
  • A glorious way, no, the only way, to consume as many carbs as possible in one meal. Pastry on the bottom, a different type of pastry on the top, unidentifiable flesh in the middle, and a tsunami of mashed potato.
  • Imagine the biggest slug you've ever seen. Then imagine eating it.
  • Spotted dick is a dense and delicious combination of sugar, flour, currants and the raw, shredded fat found around the loins and kidneys of a sheep. And if that's not sophisticated enough, it is traditionally drenched in the national beverage: custard.
  • Exactly the same as the above recipe but with sausages and therefore 3.7 times tastier.
  • Despite the name, there's no mistaking this one for a dessert. It's a sausage made out of blood. Congealed blood. And oats.
  • It looks all puffy and mouthwatering like a pudding, right? But don't let its friendly appearance fool you. It is not a pudding at all. Like 95% of all British cuisine, it is comprised entirely of eggs, flour, milk and fat.
  • A proper British fry-up requires more than a plate: it requires a vast platter capable of accommodating not just predictable eggs and banal bacon but their exotic cousins: kidneys, fried bread, a sausage made entirely of blood (see black pudding, below) and a concoction of leftover potatoes and vegetables that we inexplicably call "bubble and squeak."

  • “Demand and customers will be changed when we reopen,” she says, adding that production facilities will be leaner, teams will be smaller, and product offerings will be simpler—a trend that could be seen across the board.
  • “We don’t know how this pandemic will progress or what seasonal impacts there will be,” Moh says. “One thing we can count on: There will be a lot of innovation in our industry as a result.”
  • “It will be important that designers be sensitive in their tone and outreach,” she says. “Understanding their clients’ challenges and offering extra consulting hours will help them plan for the near- and long-term future.”
  • “It won’t be about the size of your booth or how high and thick your walls are. It’ll be about the story you’re bringing to life and who is behind the projects the brands are presenting.”
  • “The design fairs won’t disappear,” she says. “They’re a key part of our industry. Some shows might have virtual components, but at the end of the day, we need human connection and human touch.”
  • “We can specify materials that are non-porous, easy to clean, and reduce the likelihood of infection, but the safest workplaces will be those that follow the guidelines of local health officials. An integrated approach of policies, operations, and personal responsibility will be required.”
  • “Offices may evolve to become more intentional, meaning that much of the heads-down work will happen at home and the physical workplace becomes a place to connect with others, leading to increased social space, amenities, and conference rooms,”
  • Kowles anticipates that younger firms will emerge as more financially mindful practices. “It won’t surprise me if the future generation, myself included, focuses on recession-proofing their businesses and what overhead is truly essential. Shared offices, online conference platforms, digital presentations, and world-wide express shipping are going to be hot commodities.”
  • In day-to-day internal activities, design firms will lean on their coworkers and community, predicts Cheryl Durst, executive vice president of IIDA. “As designers and design professionals, we are accustomed to putting humans and their needs first,” she says. “In this brave new world, we’ll see that the skills and abilities design affords to us—empathy, curiosity, patience, common sense, problem-solving—are more crucial than ever.”
  • The pandemic has understandably spurred a feeling of unrest, grief, and anxiety among consumers, who are now craving colors that instill a sense of reassurance and comfort.
  • Suddenly the little annoyances they’ve overlooked for years will become big things that must be fixed now—and they’ll be willing to pay a premium to have it done right.
  • There will be a surge in purchasing once the economy is back,
  • That’s what I see the design community struggling with: Understanding how to translate the impact of their work to a dollar amount that resonates with their consumer.
  • two words for creatives who are considering lowering their prices: Be careful
  • Sadly, I think [the virus] might eliminate some of the young brands that have emerged in the last few years,
  • adding that production facilities will be leaner, teams will be smaller, and product offerings will be simpler—a trend that could be seen across the board
  • Demand and customers will be changed when we reopen
  • But designers thrive in constrained situations like this. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the best work done in a long time happens in the next couple of years.
  • “We know from prior challenging times that when the going gets tough, be creative,” says Scott Hudson, CEO of Henrybuilt. “There isn’t going to be a lot of surplus capital to work with for most companies, so product development may slow down. But designers thrive in constrained situations like this. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the best work done in a long time happens in the next couple of years.”
  • To that end, AD PRO asked a number of experts to detail how they think COVID-19 will impact key aspects of interior design, from pricing and communications strategy to color trends and trade shows.

  • Each robot costs $35,000, including training, maintenance and marketing, he said.
  • For some companies, closed salad bars have created new opportunities. California-based Chowbotics previously marketed its foodservice robot to hospitals and college campuses: Two places with a strong demand for healthy and tasty meals at all hours, the startup’s CEO Rick Wilmer said.
  • Instead of using a salad bar, customers can order a customized salad from an employee wearing a mask and gloves who puts together their lettuce, cherry tomatoes and more behind a chef’s case, he said. Instead of a kettle of soup, cold soup is prepacked or available hot from an employee.
  • Hot and cold bars are now filled with pre-packed foods like croissants and fruit salads. 
  • Many Americans are still working from home, limiting social gatherings and juggling a lighter-than-usual schedule, too, she said. That means consumers do not need a grab-and-go meal to scarf down between the office and a child’s soccer practice or cheeses or olives to put together a charcuterie plate for a party.
  • Sales in those parts of the store have had a steep drop during the pandemic as salad bars shut and shoppers bought items with a long shelf life, such as canned beans, rice and frozen foods.
  • Companies and industry watchers say self-serve bars may be gone for awhile, and perhaps forever, even as consumers return to more typical buying patterns.
  • The deli and prepared food areas that used to draw traffic to stores and differentiate grocers have fallen from favor as customers worry about the spread of the coronavirus, cook more from scratch and try to limit their time in stores.
  • At Publix, salad bars and hot bars have reopened, but employees dish out each item. Wegmans moved hummus, olives and more behind the counter. And at H-E-B, some coolers carry prepared meals from local restaurants.
  • That’s sparked creative solutions and new safety measures.
  • Grocers and industry watchers say self-serve bars may be gone for awhile, and perhaps forever, even as consumers return to more typical buying patterns.

  • You can purchase tickets for the event here.
  • “I hope that now in this moment we’re living in, people acknowledge that Black people loved and had joy and came together to pay rent,” he says. The medium may be different ,but gathering virtually or in real life gives the opportunity to celebrate being alive at this moment. “We take care of us and we have been forever,” Tate says.
  • The message of the evening is the same as it was then. Even as segregation and discrimination pressed upon partygoers in their day-to-day lives in a city that didn’t always feel like their home, they could come together for a brief moment to be in communion with one another.
  • “It was classic southern fare,” Tate says, and the meals provided more than sustenance for partygoers. “It was a taste of the home they’d left.”
  • Musical performances by actress and singer Marisha Wallace and a history lesson by James Beard Foundation lifetime achievement award winner, Dr. Jessica Harris
  • cocktail demo by historian and beverage expert Tonya Hopkins.
  • optional add-on cooking demo by chef Omar Tate of Honeysuckle Pop-ups
  • This Thursday, New York City’s Museum of Food and Drink will pay homage to Harlem rent parties (which ran well into the 1940’s) by hosting a virtual party with food, cocktails, music, and history.
  • Faced with discriminatory high rents and low wages, Harlem renters opened up their homes for parties in order to make some extra cash to cover rent that month. In the process, they also created communion for African Americans fresh from the South, looking for a bit of home in the Northeast.
  • In 1920’s Harlem, a card with a rhymed couplet announcing a “whist party” or “social dance,” (or a simple red, blue, or pink lightbulb in an apartment window) was a stealth invitation to a rent party.

Population increase caused people to start converting industrial areas into residential neighborhoods.
  • INDUSTRIAL INTERIOR DESIGN STYLE

  • SOUTHWESTERN INTERIOR DESIGN STYLE
  • It dates all the way back to Hollywood’s golden age in the 1930s. Hollywood glam interiors are made up of a mix of art deco and mid-century modern. This is an interior design style that is here to be seen. High contrast color combinations were the popular choice for color schemes.
  • HOLLYWOOD GLAM INTERIOR DESIGN STYLE
  • You don’t have to live by the beach to appreciate the coastal interior design style. Not to be confused with nautical décor, the coastal decorating style is in another league of its own. A coastal space makes note of its natural environment.
  • COASTAL INTERIOR DESIGN STYLE

  • Shabby chic decor emphasizes vintage elements to recreate the antique flea market look. The furniture are characterized by their aged appearance, with distressed wood composition covered in sanded milk paint to show signs of wear and tear.
  • Urban interior design stems from the modern designer lofts in the major cities. Taking cues from its cosmopolitan environment, urban modern is a fusion of various opposing and complementary traits. Minimalist modern, glamorous chic, ethnic heirlooms, and edgy experimental designs all collide in a distinctively 21st-century setting.
  • Farmhouse decor is a modern approach to cabin-inspired interior design. Mostly transitional in nature with some traditional elements mixed in, farmhouse aesthetic should transport your imagination to French Provence. Source some dried lavender bunches and other greeneries – careful arrangement of vases and planters will really stylize your home.
  • Bohemian decor captures the carefree and adventurous spirit of the avant-garde lifestyle. It features creative application of rich patterns and vibrant colors, especially those with red or purple tones. The key is to carefully present a purposefully “messy” look. Layer on textiles (throws, pillows, rugs, tapestry) for a warm ambience.
  • An off-shoot of the mid-century modern movement, Scandinavian design introduced a popular minimalist look to the interior architecture field that lasts to this day.

  • "If there is a second wave," Pappalardo said, "we are likely to see a lot of these same behaviors resume or continue, although likely in a tempered fashion, as the entire industry is a bit more educated and prepared for it at this point."
  • With the country now in an "official recession," Pappalardo predicts there will be "a higher emphasis on value for consumers over the next 12-18 months, with value being a relative term depending on the consumer and occasion in question."
  • Spikes in grocery sales for items with a long shelf life wasn't just a preference among U.S. consumers when coronavirus hit, it was a survival tactic.
  • As a precautionary measure in advance of a potential second wave of coronavirus, Ens said they are "making sure we have alternative sources of ingredients in the event our partners are faced with shortages or supply issues."
  • The company behind popular products like Goldfish crackers, V8 beverages, Swanson broths, Prego pasta sauce and more, also expects to see the online ordering and delivery "click and collect" model will accelerate.
  • The first, he noted, is quick scratch cooking, which involves simple ingredients that can be easily assembled to make a great-tasting meal.
  • four clear consumer and retail trends that he believes will continue to shape the landscape for these businesses in the immediate future
  • He continued: "Our suppliers were already in pretty constant contact with us to make sure that they were going to be able to meet our demands, as we were exceeding our own plans. They were ready. They were already hedging to be there for us."
  • "We've really elevated our relationships and dialogue with our suppliers and identified a secondary supply. We took all inventories up about 50%," CEO T.J. McIntyre told ABC News. "We can't build finished food inventory, but we can definitely make sure that we have enough of our most important ingredients: organic oats, organic coconut oil and organic sugar."
  • "Established, major brands in categories like snacks and cereal have seen a resurgence, in part by an initial move to nostalgia triggered by the uncertain times, and in part because they maintained more shelf space versus newer entrants as retailers chose to focus on the larger manufacturers," Pappalardo said.
  • Early on, he said staples like canned goods and dried beans "saw a big jump due to uncertainty as to general food availability."
  • "We've seen some cracks in the food supply chain," Glenn Pappalardo, a food and beverage strategy and initiatives partner at JPG Resources told ABC News.

  • Students “are looking for open, fluid designs in the classroom. Instead of a static classroom filled with individual desks, designers should look for ways to create breakout spaces. Educators from Edutopia recommend arranging desks and tables to create nooks and designated spaces specified for different areas of study.”
  • In coworking spaces, “I” and “we” spaces are equally important: the latter for collaborative effort and socializing, the former for focused work. Diversity in seating arrangements also helps people break out of ruts and get fresh perspective
  • It supported anecdotal evidence that architects had been citing all along: “Children learn better under illumination from skylights or windows, rather than bulbs.”
  • It supported anecdotal evidence that architects had been citing all along: “Children learn better under illumination from skylights or windows, rather than bulbs.”
  • Jeremy Mettler, a social studies teacher at Batavia High School, says “The reality is, if you’re sitting in an uncomfortable chair or you’re distracted by glare, you’re focusing on the source of the discomfort rather than the learning. The distraction is a stress, and if you’re stressed, you’re not learning.” Comfort in a learning environment can be as simple as adequate lighting, proper acoustics, and well-regulated ambient temperature.
  • According to Oshin Vartanian, Adjunct Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto Scarborough, a part of the brain’s core emotion network is activated when viewing rooms with a curvilinear design. They were regarded as beautiful and pleasant. Rooms with high ceilings, on the other hand, stimulated “visuospatial exploration”; that is, they made people pay more attention.

  • “When you open the door to a space, does it give you permission to act differently other than to be behaviorally conditioned to ‘sit and sit’ or ‘stand and deliver’? If the space doesn’t give permission to change, then it’s too easy to revert back to what we know,” Scott-Webber says.
  • It’s not the architect’s fault. “One of the first things architects and designers do is they have to bid for jobs that they’re interested in or clients come to them. Either way they’re consulting with the client. However, that doesn’t happen in education,” Klein says.
  • The challenge now, according to Nair, is to imagine “what a school could be, as opposed to what it has always been.”
  • Schools followed the “sage on the stage” model — that is, a classroom layout with a central platform where the teacher stands, and chairs that face it. It’s simple enough, and it worked well enough. 
  • “Schools are one building type that we’re all familiar with because we’ve all been to school,” says Prakash Nair, president and founding partner of Fielding Nair Architects, specialists in learning space design. 
  • Albert Einstein — one of the leading intellectual luminaries of our time and an educator — once declared that he did not teach his students. “I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.”

  • The first week [which involved] stabilizing this whole situation—the office, working from home—was about technology and the second week was about humanity, about the team: How do they feel, how are they holding on? I don’t know what’s going to happen the third week, but I predict, when things are a little more streamlined, it’s going to be about the opportunities, the things we can learn from all this. What are the new potential clients for us, where is the new frontier, what can we do to survive? It’s changing by the day as everybody is adapting to the situation. 
  • In this world of social impact, the role I play as inspirational leader and support system is to say: We can continue to do this work full steam ahead, but what do you need to be doing right now for your community? Let’s not just force something because we want to maintain the normal. Because they have the opportunity to lead crisis management in a different way, I want to be supportive of them in being relevant to their communities. So I’m asking that question to our clients and collaborators, giving them permission to not have to work in the same way they’ve always worked. But with our architectural partners that also has to be a shared value, because they are also trying to maintain their businesses and their revenues. There’s a surreal mix of trying to maintain order, but being genuine and authentic about designing spaces that generate social impact.
  • What we do is all about keeping humans in contact and the relationship-building that only happens when you’re face to face. I don’t think that’s going to change. I see my employees’ faces more than ever, right now. We are a resilient group and have weathered all kinds of economic things. I don’t believe this is going to topple the industry. It might enhance it. We are ingenious and inventive, and I believe we will get to experiment again and instigate new methods.
  • As the pandemic continues, architects and designers are beginning another week of working from home, in and out of web meetings, with the hope that the situation will soon improve.

Keeping investments to one or two good pieces streamlines the process and means that it's easier to let go of an item that might not fit in a new space.
  • The new grays that have gained wide appeal have become a standard base for the millennial palette, along with more whitewashed gray variations, other soft neutrals and cooler whites influenced by Scandinavian decor. Bolder pops of color on accent walls are a popular counterpoint, and colorful wallpapers are also making a comeback

A circular wooden counter forms the centrepiece of the kitchen, topped with marble and featuring curved elements that slide out to provide a counter for eating. Upstairs, one of the bedrooms is furnished with a delicate wooden bed frame and a pair of pale chairs, while in the master suite, the bed is backed by a folded brass headboard. Doors lead from this bedroom into the darkly painted en-suite bathroom, where a pair of sinks are built to face out the windows. A rug resembling animal skin covers the wooden floor beside the freestanding bathtub, which has golden taps that match the towel rack and lighting. Workstead is led by husband and wife Robert Highsmith and Stefanie Brechbuehler, and has studios in both Brooklyn and Charleston – a port city that dates back to 1670, and has an impressive collection of historic buildings. Other renovation projects in the city include a restaurant that US design studio Basic Projects transformed from a dark interior into an eclectic, light-filled dining space.

"Products already on the market use things like worms and turning mechanisms, but I wanted to find something that was different," he continued.

Cullis Watson is currently investigating options for Taihi – which was awarded the 2017 New Designers Joseph Joseph Brilliantly Useful award – and completing a second version of the design. Dutch design duo Makkink & Bey have also created a unique method of waste reuse, designing a toilet that collects poo and wee and transforms it into compost.

  • "Products already on the market use things like worms and turning mechanisms, but I wanted to find something that was different," he continued. "I stumbled on bokashi in an online journal and thought its simplicity was perfect." The designer created a purposefully "clear and minimal" appearance for the bin, to emphasise the method's cleanliness and simplicity, and visually link it to modern Japanese design. Cullis Watson is currently investigating options for Taihi – which was awarded the 2017 New Designers Joseph Joseph Brilliantly Useful award – and completing a second version of the design. Dutch design duo Makkink & Bey have also created a unique method of waste reuse, designing a toilet that collects poo and wee and transforms it into compost.

  • Global wealth inequality has reached yet another record high, and the richest one per cent now own slightly more than half of the world's wealth, says a new report from global banking giant Credit Suisse. The latest edition of the bank's Global Wealth Report also comes with a warning that millennials are unlikely to attain their parents' levels of wealth. The amount of wealth held by the top one per cent rose from 42.5 per cent in 2008, at the height of the financial crisis, to 50.1 per cent this year, Credit Suisse said. It has hit a new record high every year since 2013. Patrick Aventurier via Getty Images Luxury yachts are displayed at the Hercules Port in Monaco for the 27th edition of the International Monaco Yacht Show, Sept. 28, 2017 in Monaco. The world's richest one per cent now control slightly more than half the world's wealth, according to a new report from Credit Suisse. Meanwhile, 3.5 billion people, corresponding to 70 per cent of the world's adults, each own less than US$10,000 in wealth, the report found. Together, they hold just 2.7 per cent of the world's wealth. "Inequality has continued to edge upwards, so that ... median wealth fell again this year in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America," the report said. "Our projections for 2022 suggest more pessimistic scenarios for the immediate years ahead." The world's household wealth grew by 6.4 per cent over the past year, in U.S. dollar terms, the fastest rate in five years. The world minted 2.3 million new U.S.-dollar millionaires in that time, almost half of them in the U.S. Credit Suisse Wealth in Canada grew somewhat more slowly than the world average, up 4.4 per cent in a year in Canadian dollar terms. The number of U.S.-dollar millionaires in Canada has surpassed one million in recent years. Credit Suisse estimates there are 1,078,000 millionaires in Canada, up about 9.5 per cent in two years, from 984,000 in 2015. 'Particularly challenging circumstances' for millennials The report devotes considerable space to assessing young adults' wealth situation, and suggests millennials are unlikely to achieve their parents' levels of wealth. "We find that millennials face particularly challenging circumstances compared to other generations," wrote Credit Suisse chairman Urs Rohner in the report's preamble. "With the baby boomers occupying most of the top jobs and much of the housing, millennials are doing less well than their parents at the same age, especially in relation to income, home ownership and other dimensions of well-being...." More from HuffPost Canada: Canada's Income Inequality 'Surged Under Harper': Analysis 4 Cities Are Responsible For Most Of Canada's Growth In Inequality The report lists a litany of reasons for younger adults' poorer prospects: the destruction of wealth during the financial crisis of 2008-09, and higher unemployment rates since then; rising house prices; increasing inequality and lower income mobility; and less access to retirement pensions. "We expect only a minority of high achievers and those in high-demand sectors such as technology or finance to effectively overcome the 'millennial disadvantage,'" Rohner wrote.
