Design Competition for Post-Disaster Provisional Housing have been announced, with this proposal by Studio Lindfors among the projects in the Selected Entries category. Update: this project is included in Dezeen Book of Ideas, which is on sale now for £12.

The Minimalist Principle: Omit Needless Things “Omit needless words.” - William Strunk Jr., The Elements of Style While minimalist aesthetics and products and the minimalist lifestyle appeals to a lot of people, they find it easier to like it than to live it. Minimalism is something people might strive for, but they don’t know where to start. I’d start with the advice of William Strunk Jr. in his classic minimalist treatise on writing (quoted above), but apply it to life in general, and everything you do: “Omit needless things.” I could (and probably should) stop writing there, because that’s really all the advice you need. “A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (Audiobook) (repost) Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (Audiobook) By Malcolm Gladwell English | 2005 | ISBN: 1586217194 | 7 hours and 43 minutes | M4B | 272 MB In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance. Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology and displaying all of the brilliance that made The Tipping Point a classic, Blink changes the way you understand every decision you make.
