Found this interesting post on Fast Company about experimental personal wayfinding systems using the magnetic properties of indoor spaces and mobile devices. Obviously not ready for primetime, but imagine if implemented. All I can say is watch out…lost souls will be colliding everywhere!
Never Lost: MIT Creates Wayfinding Arrows Projected From Your Cellphone

Studio Tectonic recently installed a thermostat designed by Bould Design for Nest. Here’s a bit from the nest.com blog posting…
Every time I see a photo of the Nest Learning Thermostat, it’s exciting. It doesn’t matter how many I see. We designed Nest to blend into any decor, and it’s fascinating to see our thermostat glowing warmly on walls across the country. Today, I’d like to share some of my favorite pictures of Nest – thanks so much to everyone who sent in a pic.
Seth Frankel does museum exhibition design and planning, and you can tell. He sent us a pic of his Nest in his office, Studio Tectonic.

Welcome to the blog and news spot for Studio Tectonic. I’ll be using this space to share things related both directly to the core work of Studio Tectonic as well as elements of design, learning and culture from lots of thinly connected fields.
I appreciate you taking the time to peruse the site and hope to reward you with intriguing postings.
Finally, rather than strive for “press perfect” postings, I’m keeping the bar a bit lower to allow for a more fluid and free-flowing format.
