Party on the Fremont - Portland, Oregon. For the annual Portland Bridge Pedal, the bridges are closed to cars so 19,000 bicycles can have their turn. This is a photo of the Fremont Bridge which is normally full of cars but today is an opportunity for selfies and celebration.

130’ Retaining Wall Tallest in Western Hemisphere, Seattle, WA, 2012 (via seattleairport)

With love’s light wings did I o’erperch these walls, 
For stony limits cannot hold love out, 
And what love can do, that dares love attempt.


Oh, Seattle is definitely slipping into the Boneshaker alt-universe. Pretty soon it’ll just cease to exist in ours altogether.

The Futuro House was designed in 1968 by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen. It was commissioned as a “holiday house” or vacation home. Because it would be used in a mountainside setting, the structure needed to be easy to transport to the site, low maintenance and shed snow easily. The final design of the Futuro House met all those criteria. It’s just over 26 feet in diameter and came completely equipped with custom furnishings that fit the interesting shape of this house.

According to The Dirt (the ASLA blog), painting lawns has increased along with the US drought. What a pathetic choice. The American attachment to lawns despite great alternatives needs a reality check. We, as residential designers, have an important job to do.  http://dirt.asla.org/2012/08/21/with-drought-lawn-painting-spreads/


…gross. There are loads of less transparently vain options than PAINTING your LAWN.
