The current issue of Metropolis features a cover story by Sam Jacob that asks “Is everyone a maker?”. You can read it online here. I think this kind of question appeals to our community, and could bring about some interesting discussion. This issue also has a couple brief features of some artists from the Pacific Northwest. Come to the library and take a look! The periodical section is right by the couches and coffee pot. See you there!
From their Facebook page:
“In the quest for why design happens in a certain way, Metropolis explores economic, environmental, social, cultural, political, and technological contexts. With its innovative graphic presentation and provocative voice, Metropolis shows how richly designed our world can be.”
“Metropolis is a national trade magazine for architects and designers that attracts a wide audience. It examines contemporary life through design—architecture, interior design, product design, graphic design, social responsibility, planning, and preservation. Subjects range from the sprawling urban environment to intimate living spaces to the objects we use every day.”
