WTF Spelling Bee, I’m leaving Rome today and I assure you this is a word
A galleria! With faux adaptive reuse! Might I suggest some banners? twitter.com/alexbozikovic/…
And can we get grab-bars, ramps, etc (as well as sensory/mobility aids) with some AESTHETIC? Just because they’re functional doesn’t mean they have to look industrial/clinical. If you can make an Art Deco or Nouveau staircase, you can crank out some elegant ramps and bars.

Women in Architecture | 2. When the Bauhaus opened in 1919, it promised to welcome students "without regard to age or sex,” yet when clever young women, like Gertrud Hantschk, asked to study architecture, they were told that it was reserved for men. instagram.com/p/Cfnw6xSDslK/

I *am* an architecture critic and I don’t think supertalls look cool but more importantly, I agree they are irrelevant to the production of more housing twitter.com/vamonosla/stat…
I like that one of the stories we’ll have from this trip is that time we were on a bus in Rome and an illegally parked car meant it couldn’t make the turn and about 5 other bus drivers on our bus got out and directed our driver backward and forward until he got the right angle.

Our public spaces and accommodations- streets, shopping areas, sports venues, schools, parks, buses, etc. - are where we ordinarily come together, interacting in small ways with people unlike ourselves, learning how to share civic life. 3/

Ceiling appreciation post at the Vatican (not *that* one because I follow the rules)
This is so sad and shocking. Dezeen is many things but Marcus saw me speak at a conference and said, Come use my platform to write whatever you want, and that made a huge difference twitter.com/dezeen/status/…

"abortion is being erased from medical education under our very noses, creating a vicious cycle whereby most of us continue not to know or think about a skillset and body of knowledge being steadily withdrawn from view, in medical schools as in the law." nplusonemag.com/online-only/on…

American Seating’s original and largest market was school furniture, and they cornered this market to such a degree that the company faced multiple antitrust lawsuits in the early 20th century. There is almost a 100% chance that you sat at an American Seating desk in school.
