Happy New Year DA Collective,


With the start of every year, our focus turns to “beginnings” as a whole. Resolutions, new outlooks, rebranding, reorganizing … redesign. At almost every level we take a deeper look inside this introspective month. Design solves problems. It is the answer to many of our questions. Whether designing your new approach to life, your aesthetic, to corporate environments and sporting areas. There are pages to turn, new chapters to write, evolutions to begin and as Charles Eames once put it “reorganizing the need is the primary condition for design.”Ask the question, recognize the need … therein lies the ability to create and design. May this new year and decade be your reinvention, my dear Design Alchemists. Let’s reflect quickly, then journey together.

from Dezeen’s, Remembering the great architects and designers we lost in 2019

Influential architects and designers, we lost in 2019

Where to begin? Their contributions will forever be benchmarks for achievements in the world of design. Often imitated, but never recreated, these visionaries lead far beyond their times. Their portfolios included world-class cars and global gateway airports. The world’s first, tallest buildings, radical museums, to iconic style and leather gloves. Here are those our industry has lost.

NYC wins Wallpaper Design Award for 2020 Best City

The Shed, Hudson Yards, Pace Gallery, Hunter’s Point Library, and the list rolls on. It’s no wonder why this iconic city keeps the world and innovation as a whole, on our tipi-toes. Viola NYC, you take the GOLD!

425 Park Avenue dominates real state and more
