Making history at the Met, Love of Libraries, "Duchess of Deconstruction", and your invitation to be in an exhibition!!
Frequent Visitors is a weekly newsletter created to share the things we (over at Frequent Practice) have enjoyed visiting each week. Sometimes related to design, reads, and creativity. Sometimes related to anything else.
Mexican architect Frida Escobedo has been selected to realize the renovation of The Met’s modern and contemporary galleries, making her the first woman to design a wing at The Met!!!! A marvellous choice.
I hope to bring people together and address big urgent issues around sustainability and waste in a way that feels lighthearted.
We love our bread, we love our butter, but most of all, we love each + every library. Lars Müller has recently published a book on the Oslo Public Library that documents the design and building process by Lundhagem and Atelier Oslo. In addition, it features essays by novelist Elif Shafak and the director of the library discussing the significance of libraries as an “integrative social force”. Adding to cart asap.
Speaking of libraries, one of our all time favourites to visit is Calgary’s Central Library by Snøhetta. In addition to the building (especially the interior) being a masterpiece, the Calgary Public Library has little gems sprinkled around the space:
Reading builds empathy, and empathy strengthens the foundations of our civil society.
The Coal + Ice Climate Posterator is an easy to use online tool for anyone, anywhere, to design posters that address the climate crisis. All posters created in the tool will be displayed at the COAL + ICE exhibition at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The project was developed by Jonas with typefaces by typographic dreamboats: Sascha Bente, Gruppo Due, Dinamo, and Raoul Gottschling.
Our friends at Studio Faculty redesigned their storefront’s homepage, pulling inspiration from a 1962 Braun catalogue! It’s as lovely as their selection of books and objects.
Paris based graphic design practice République Studio shared the beautiful work they did for a recent Cité de l'architecture exhibit.
That’s it for this week! Thank you for reading and we hope you enjoyed your visit :) We love having visitors as much as we love being them, so it would mean the world if you shared this newsletter with someone you think might enjoy it! As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts + learn about some of your favourite finds by reading your replies to this email!!
