Tiny modern house critiqued in a supurb video

It's a 3:37 video that I can't even embed. You'll have to click the link below.

Magazines, TV Shows, Blogs bring us more design than ever, more interaction than ever.

But I'm not satisfied. With all the interest, with all the talent, with all the technology, we should be doing better.

Last night I found this little video about a little house. It's a fascinating house but that's not what interested me most:
It's criticism in a human voice. It's educational entertainment that leaves me thinking. It's a breath of fresh air.
I think it shows up lifeless real estate ads full of marketing keywords, scripted celebrity TV design shows, and worshipful brand building magazine articles.

Mary Louise Schumacher produced this superb video and I want more. Bravo.

  1. Great video, really makes you think. Did you notice that pottery was included as an essential?
    Thanks
