The Architects’ Journal blog network introduced a selectively curated architecture and design inspiration, the Architects’ Notebook. Collecting both editors’ picks and others, it presents the Heffer Pitcher (admittedly, a favorite gift of mine) and the recent crowd-favorite the hand from above.
Clearly, even without explanation, crowd curation is valuable. Yet sometimes, I wish there were a bit more pause for individual contemplation. The burden is on us to consider implications of the visual inspiration, or contemplation may be in danger of going extinct.
