Darragh Casey | What's new in Design + Architecture? | Scoop.it

From Cork, Ireland, I obtained a BA in Art & Design Education from NCAD, Dublin. Moving to London in 2010, I completed my MA in Design (furniture) from Central St. Martin’s College of Art & Design in 2012 with a project titled “Shelving the Body”. I was awarded a ‘Future Makers’ Grant from the Craft Council of Ireland (2012) and I was also short listed for a ‘Nova Award – The Lowe and Partners award for fresh creative talent’ for my MA graduate work.

The Design Museum Dharavi (Mumbai, India)

The Design Museum Dharavi (Mumbai, India) | What's new in Design + Architecture? | Scoop.it
An informal urban settlement in the middle of Mumbai, Dharavi is best known as the location of the Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire. In (mis)representing Dharavi as the world's largest slum, however, the film did nothing for the attributed one-dimensional stereotypes of inadequate housing, poor sanitation, infrequent access to water and electricity, and abject poverty. While certainly somewhat true, these slum clichés do not tell the complete story: Dharavi has a remarkable number of potters, tailors, carpenters, and all manner of crafters - some 20,000 makers, in fact; something unacknowledged not only by glazed, poverty-porn Western eyes, but by the rest of Mumbai too. Which is precisely where Design Museum Dharavi comes in. (Icon magazine)

Print is far from dead at XL-Muse’s destination bookstore

Print is far from dead at XL-Muse’s destination bookstore | What's new in Design + Architecture? | Scoop.it

HANGZHOU – Tweets and texts are distracting today’s teens from serious reading, and if they are impelled to buy books they are likely to do so online. Traditional bookstores are taking a hit, even in China, where respect for literacy is deep-rooted. The present situation persuaded a teacher-turned-publisher to envision a bookstore that would be a destination – for socializing as well as browsing. He commissioned three Zhongshuge stores in his native Shanghai from Li Xiang, who heads local architectural firm XL-Muse, and then asked her to go a step further and create China's most beautiful bookstore in the ancient city of Hangzhou.

“Design has nothing to do with art”: Design legend Milton Glaser dispels a universal misunderstanding

“Design has nothing to do with art”: Design legend Milton Glaser dispels a universal misunderstanding | What's new in Design + Architecture? | Scoop.it

Design is not art. It’s a distinction understood by practicing designers, but it still eludes many. In an Oct. 29 talk at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, the 87-year-old graphic design legend Milton Glaser gave the best definition of the practice of design. “Design is the process of going from an existing condition to a preferred one,” said the 2010 National Medal of Arts recipient. “Observe that there’s no relationship to art.”
