When I was younger, birthdays meant homemade cake by grandpa, new clothes and lots of picture taking. I guess not much has changed since then except cake has been replaced with Georgetown cupcakes, I buy my own clothes (well, mom will forever insist on her own fashion choices from time to time) and all my pictures are filtered Mayfair.
I grew up with Slow Food without knowing it. My mother would wake me at the crack of dawn to hoe the string beans, shuck the corn and dig potatoes—not exactly my idea of fun. I was jealous that my best friend’s mom could take a pizza from the freezer, pop it in the oven and within minutes we could be eating it.
For the past eight years The Design Museum in London has selected designs throughout the world and celebrated them in the Designs of the Year exhibition. The designs chosen fall into a wide variety of categories, such as fashion, architecture, and transportation. The tagline that encapsulates the show is “Someday the other museums will be showing this stuff”.
The global extravaganza of Expo is upon us, this time hosted by Italy.
