Food and Spring Time
April 2023 Curated Ingest
April really has flown by! I’m excited to welcome the warmer weather in the city — I’m running a race in a few weeks, and then it’s time for graduation! Some personal updates:
I updated my personal site :)
I am two weeks out from graduating. I have two projects left to complete before I graduate... no papers or tests!
I am excited to be traveling to Japan in early June for two weeks -- let me know if you have any recommendations!
Next, a poem I recently found I wanted to share:
Saturday all things happen to us:
drink lots of brandy and go to bed early.
Saturday we make a pillow and revolutionize the apartment.

Architecture & Clothing
Bell Labs NJ remodel - interesting in the context of ‘turn office spaces into apartments’ discussions. They use the exterior of this building in Severance.
Finalists for a competition around 'new kinds of home communities' in the UK. The way they show their work is so interesting to me!
I like this cabinet texture
Bloomberg piece on bus dwellers — features cool animations!
Interview with the Nike Vaporfly 3 (racing shoe) designer.
Notes on taste - I like #12
Fletcher C Johnson’s History of Williamsburg
Bike Kill :O
Made in Situ - Portuguese cork made furniture (thanks Connor!)
That’s all! I hope you are all doing well and are able to enjoy the spring time. I’ll leave you with another poem that I quite liked:
I Need a Poem
Can we talk about the moon
tonight? Low & full
in the baby-blue sky. A friend
at my door, the sound
of her laugh & well-loved
heart. I want to be held
up like that. I need a poem
about happiness I haven't
written yet, an ode
to the ducks in my neighbours'
pool, another for the pink
magnolias of spring - some trees
make it look so easy: Yes,
I can hold all this beauty up.
- Kyla Jamieson (2018)
