Today I’m working at my office on 1st and Pittsburg. Looking out the window, there are old, manufacturing buildings everywhere, many of them now repurposed in new ways. Sad that not all buildings can be renovated as they age and maintained for a dignified usefulness.
- As a former Michigander, this article on Detroit’s decaying architectural treasures caught my attention.
- So did this Saginaw, MI, graffiti artist and his portrayal of Simon & Garfunkel’s song “America.”
- Which leads to the age-old debate: Is graffiti art or vandalism?
- And here’s wall art of another kind: Wall & Deco is a contemporary wallpaper company from Italy. Their work is so intriguing, particularly their typeface and letterpress papers. Perfect for a graphic designer’s studio!
