Birthdays, a big splash, Femme Type, and modernist architecture in the Prairies.
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.
This Week’s Visits:
⑴ Happy 90th Birthday to the one and only Dieter Rams!! To celebrate this angel, you are able to watch the wonderful Gary Huswit documentary on Rams for free through May 21st. Might we point out the 59 (ish) minute mark where you see Dieter driving fast in his stunning Porsche, followed by a glimpse into his beautiful Japanese-inspired garden.
⑵ TYPEONE Magazine — Issue 04 celebrates the contributions women have made in the Type Space and features a stunning cover by a regular FV share, Margot Lévêque, and a typeface by our beloved friend Vivian Dehning!!
⑶ Joint Loose’s bookshop Ensemble Books in Marseille is celebrating a year of being open and what better way to celebrate than admire their collection dedicated to contemporary photography?
⑷ The Reuse, Renew, Recycle: Recent Architecture from China exhibit at the MoMA, featuring architects that have ‘championed small-scale interventions that seek to meaningfully engage with the preexisting built environment and established social structures.’ (More sustainable design related projects here!!)
⑸ “Jacquemus arrives in London with a splash” brb securing some flights and packing a suit.
⑹ We came across a limited print of Clifford Wiens’ memoir at the library, the remarkable low-profile Saskatchewan modernist architect.
Clifford Wiens’ work is of international importance.
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 + responding to all of your replies to this email!
