this post is for my husband & sister-in-law, devout brontë fans.  
because of them, i'm now working my way through all of the books.
here is some badly burnt eye porridge.

good design

too often in western culture, 
there is a divide of from from function.  there is this underlying belief, a sense that things beautiful must lack substance, 
& things useful have no need of beauty.  
i'm not in that school.   i believe perfect form & function cannot exist without each other.  this is wonderfully illustrated in recent efforts to design efficient housing for disaster relief.

tang & yang's bamboo + paper house
this folding house was designed to meet the need of 1.5 temporary homes in china.  it's origami inspired design allows it to be transported & assembled easily into varying arrangements.

house arc by Joseph Bellomo Architects
the house arc, to be used in new orleans & haiti is another bit of genius.  it packs tightly, ships easily, is super light weight, & is said to be assembled easier than your expedit.  the shape allows for natural cooling & withstanding tropical winds.  it's energy efficient & gorgeous.
