Here's some inspiration culled from radio and television, for your Memorial Day Weekend enjoyment.

This weekend's Studio 360 includes a piece on architect Danny Sagan, who was inspired to become an architect after attending a Mission of Burma concert in the late 70's.



Last week's CBS Sunday Morning was its yearly "On Design" episode. Broadcast from Berlin, it featured a number of that city's recent buildings and monuments, such as Potsdamer Platz, The Reichstag, and the Holocaust Memorial. Much of the episode focused on technological advancements ("smart" houses, LEDs, swimsuits), but the traditional (umbrellas, ant colonies) was also represented.

Most relevant to this web page was a piece on David Hertz, an architect in Santa Monica, California with celebrity clients helping him to advance the so-called "eco-luxury" movement. While unfortunately I can't find any media clips of this story, his design for the 747 Wing House is a unique way of recycling something that most architects -- or clients for that matter -- wouldn't think to recycle.

Located on a 55-acre site in Malibu, the house surely keeps the luxury in eco-luxury, perhaps inadvertently saying that sustainability is only for the rich. Regardless, when complete and getting even more media coverage, the house will be a great expression of sustainable creativity.

Add your dialogue below. Simple html (‹b›‹i›‹em›‹strong›) is OK, but make sure to preview your comment first! Oh, and please be nice!
