~Happy viewing / listening~

#tbt‬  to November 2014, when the +University of Toronto 's John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto welcomed Rose Rose to present a +bulthaup public lecture on "Strategies Across Scale."

Via a series of projects ranging in scale from the shed to the master plan, Peter's lecture addresses issues relating to a design process that is research-based, highly site-specific, and strategic in intent.

Check it out below.

Beautiful, and sustainable!

Island Residence is one of +The Huffington Post 's "9 Gorgeous Houses That Prove Your Dream Home Is Also A Green Home." 

From the Post:

"'The house is almost invisible, and much smaller than the house it replaced,' Rose told HuffPost. What gives the house its cloak of invisibility is its wood siding, made of unfinished wood that weathers naturally over time, and a green roof, populated by local sea grasses. The roof collects water into a cistern, irrigates the land around the house and keeps the house independent in terms of its water use."

Super fascinating.

But you know what would help working mothers, from secretaries to CEOs? Shared parental responsibility. Cultural, socioeconomic, and political/juridical systems that don't make women shoulder the burden of parenting alone. Expectations that their partners will pull equal weight. A rejection of the demonization of working mothers, and an embrace of fathers who raise their children as much as their partners.

In fact, we need to redefine what it means to be a "good mother" and what it means to be a "good father."

Until that happens, we're stuck with false dichotomies and double standards. Working fathers aren't "working fathers" - they're "fathers." They can "have it all," because, with the weight of parenting displaced onto their partners' shoulders, they've "had it all" this whole time.

Need we be reminded that these questions are NEVER asked of male CEOs who are "working fathers"? But Mary Barra, +Marissa Mayer , +Sheryl Sandberg , +indra nooyi ? All the time. All. The. Time.

If anyone wants a fabulous Vineyard residence, let me know. :)
 
The Fall 2014 issue of +Boston Magazine features East House, a "modern masterpiece" that can be moved away from the Martha's Vineyard bluff if erosion demands it.

For more information on this #sustainable   #innovation  in #residential   #architecture  , check out the article below, and visit www.roseandpartners.com/projects/east_house
Read about and browse through photos of this modern masterpiece of a home in Martha's Vineyard, unconventional and set in cast concrete.

MEMORANDUM

To: All firms in Silicon Valley
From: CGar, on behalf of sentient human beings
RE: Gender Equality

Dear Silicon Valley,

It is long past time for you to "disrupt" your respective industries - indeed, your business models - by rejecting misogyny. Hiring women in marquee positions does not address the structural inequalities that are endemic to organizations run by - and often for - men. Adding a single woman to your board of directors is publicist-driven tokenism, not a meaningful attempt to combat unequal representation and one-sided decision-making. Dismissing a sexual harassment suit out-of-hand and calling the woman who filed it a liar is not disruptive - it is par for the course for captains of industry.

Take seriously your dearth of women in executive positions, in engineering offices, in board rooms, in community meetings. Emulate +Google and devote some of your considerable resources to leveling the playing field. And stop blaming your diversity issues on "science," saying "that's just the way things are" and "there's nothing we can do if our hiring pool consists mostly of men." You're smart enough to know that that defense is a cop-out, and was in fact used for decades by men in other professions (once they finally came around to the idea that women, at least some women, can do anything men can do).

Get it together.

Sincerely,
CGar

When it comes to gyms, I have just a few basic requirements: working treadmills; enough free weights (and enough room to use them); and a not-oppressive atmosphere. To that end, this gym fulfills my needs. But with a pleasant and friendly staff, long hours (which allows for late nights at the office without sacrificing time at the gym), and a ridiculously low price, this one's worthy of my five stars. Full disclosure: it's no Equinox. If you're into being pampered at the gym, this one's not for you.
