A NOTE ON DESIGN...

This mural resonated with me. It brings to mind that designing a space requires an understanding and the ability to articulate a desired environment. There is no set formula on how to achieve that desired outcome; there is only the parameters determined by the space of choice & the knowledge of how to interpret & manipulate physical elements so they as a whole are perceived in such a way that supports & satisfies the desired outcome. Whoever thought it was a good idea to paint this mural in that particular space was brilliant. It sets the tone for the whole space. It reminds us to not be so serious, to indulge fantasy & whimsy from time to time.
