Musician Moby was featured in the most recent podcast of KCRW’s Design and Architecture. He talks about the motivation behind his LA architecture blog, stating that the reason he likes architecture is because it’s the one field of design that affects your life 24 hours a day. I think that’s an overstatement. It’s easy to think about situations not affected by architecture (camping immediately comes to mind). Further, I think it disregards fields of design like fashion. This really made me think about our readings in feminism. What institutions are considered important? Architecture is considered more important by Moby. He rationalizes this by saying it affects our lives everyday. Yet both fashion and architecture affect our lives everyday. We all choose our clothes and use them as a means of self-expression. That seems very important and pervasive.
