I'm pleased to announce that I've joined the distinguished slate of contributing editors to Design Observer, what I consider to be the premier site on the web for writing on design in its many disciplines. My first piece in this capacity, a review of It is What It Is, a new monograph/catalog by the design firm 2x4, is now live. Coming up next is a look at CityCenter, the enormous new complex on the Las Vegas Strip featuring Daniel Libeskind's "Crystals" shopping center [above]. It's an honor to be on the D.O. team, and with ID gone, it's nice to have a new home.
