Svbscription V6 Sinclair Smith Hatchet

I’m thrilled with the results and feedback so far on the work for the Svbscription V6 parcel, The Unexpected, and I’m happy that after months of biting my tongue, the secret is out and we can show the work! Everyone at Svbscription was a delight to work with and I appreciate the incredible care and attention they give to every detail of their process and product. There’s an interview with me on their blog here. (Photo courtesy of Svbscription. More photos to come.)

columbus circle sinclair smith blog

In response to of our fair city’s own Columbus Circle being named “Roundabout of the Year”, the public radio show Marketplace‘s morning report last week included a great segment on roundabouts that actually had me laughing at several points. Yes I’m prone to fits of childlike delight in the face of great achievements in design and engineering and yes, my recent obsession with transitional gestures and structures makes me vulnerable to new roundabout propoganda, but you need to listen to this. Just hear the name of this gentleman’s organization before you judge me…

A gentleman named Matt Keveney launched the website, 507movements.com, with all original illustrations from the 1868 book, Five Hundred and Seven Mechanical Movements by Henry T. Brown. Keveney has animated some of the examples very elegantly. It’s a fabulous site. Beautiful to peruse and total educative.
