Artistic expression is often undisciplined. Sometimes, the riot of colors and explosion of lines and forms help unleash a 2D illustration out of its medium, which is precisely what Drawing Architecture Studio (DAS) managed to create in Ucommune’s new branch in Dajiang Hutong, Beijing.

121 Definitions of Architecture

5 days 8 hours ago

There are at least as many definitions of architecture as there are architects or people who comment on the practice of it. While some embrace it as art, others defend architecture’s seminal social responsibility as its most definitive attribute. To begin a sentence with “Architecture is” is a bold step into treacherous territory. And yet, many of us have uttered — or at least thought— “Architecture is…” while we’ve toiled away on an important project, or reflected on why we’ve chosen this professional path.

Most days, architecture is a tough practice; on others, it is wonderfully satisfying. Perhaps, though, most importantly, architecture is accommodating and inherently open to possibility.

This collection of statements illustrates the changing breadth of architecture’s significance; we may define it differently when talking among peers, or adjust our statements for outsiders.

A note: In an age that is particularly enamored with capturing ideas in 140 characters or less, it is tempting to take these remarks out of context. Yet many are part of a larger, nuanced conversation. Sources and/or context are included for each definition.

How to Design Your Business to Attract Millennials

5 days 19 hours ago

Are you looking to attract a younger workforce? Millennials were once thought of as lazy and fickle, but these days businesses are starting to realize just how valuable they can be. Despite the perceived misconceptions, millennial workers can actually be some of the hardest working staff you’ll ever employ. They also deliver numerous benefits to your business.

However, as valuable as millennials can be for your company, it’s not always easy to convince them to work for you. The younger generation has far more options available to them, making them a little pickier about where they work. So, how can you design your business to attract millennial employees?

Freshen up your workplace

The standard dull office design is no longer considered enough for picky millennials. These days, younger workers are attracted to businesses which offer a fresh, modern and productive work environment. They particularly look out for open, collaborative office design.

If you take a look at the working environment at some of the leading companies today, you’ll quickly see they offer a fun, modern and innovative working environment to keep their workers happy and more productive.
